How did the redcoats get their guns? How heavy was a “brown-Bess”? Is that even the right name? Get

the answers to these and more questions with the Curator of the Fort Ticonderoga Museum in this one-

of-a-kind behind the scenes, hands-on program. After you receive training in handling artifacts this

program will allow you to handle original weapons from Fort Ticonderoga’s collection. Go beyond the

exhibit case, to follow the evidence on these artifacts that reveal the industrial systems employed by the

British military to develop the weapons used to conquer the world in the 18 th century.
