Author to sign book

TICONDEROGA The Artillery Never Gained More Honor is both the title and supposition of a new book by Douglas R. Cubbison. The book features a detailed look at the British Royal Artillerys involvement during the Revolutionary War at Valcour Island and in Saratoga. The years are 1776 and 1777 and the German Artillery is fighting alongside the British against the Continental Army. Using some newly-probed primary sources Cubbison also documents the current location of many of the artillery pieces used in these battles. Cubbison is the command historian for the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum and is also an avid reenactor. His division is set to return to Iraq in October. He will sign his book at the Log House at Fort Ticonderoga during the Revolutionary War encampment today and Sunday noon to 2 p.m. Another book with a local though more modern flavor will be featured at a Log House book signing on Sept. 13. Echoes from a Small Country Town by former resident of Hague Louis G. Alexander celebrates the woods, lake, and wildlife that he surrounded himself with as a boy. Alexander will be available to sign his book from noon to 2 pm. Fort Ticonderoga is open 9-4 daily through Oct. 20. The Kings Garden is open daily from 10 4 until Oct. 13. Both historic places can be explored on ones own and there are tours offered throughout the day. For more information, go online at www.fort-ticonderoga.org
