Experience Fort Ticonderoga in the beauty of winter during its next living history event Preparing for the Coming Campaign on Saturday, January 13, 2018. The event will bring to life the story of American soldiers at Ticonderoga in the year 1777 as they prepare for a British attack. Aware that their resources are limited and manpower is scarce, meet soldiers in the wintertime fort and immerse yourself into the struggle for liberty. Learn about the carpentry skills that were required to build and defend a Revolutionary era fort and see first-hand how the tools work as soldiers build a cannon carriage. Watch soldiers at work undertaking tasks such as tailoring and flag making. A full day of programs include guided tours, weapons demonstrations, and even a tasting of colonial chocolate along with a program on the importance that this food item played in the lives of American soldiers and camp followers at Ticonderoga.
