Noble Train Begins

In this one-day living history event, step into Fort Ticonderoga as if it were December 6, 1775, when Henry Knox rode into these storied walls. Watch as soldiers, days before their enlistment expires, work as carpenters to maintain the fort. Experience the raw power of oxen as these thousand pound animals pull sleds of cannon tubes. Examine the science of gunnery, preserved in Fort Ticonderoga's massive cannon collection. Stand inside the stone walls in the stark beauty of winter on the very spot where Henry Knox began his Noble Train of Artillery.
