— “Fort Ticonderoga’s story in 1776 is often overlooked,” Hill said. “While 1775 featured Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold’s capture of this fort, and 1777 saw General Burgoyne seize Ticonderoga once more, 1776 was a major rebuilding year for the Continental Army at Fort Ticonderoga. In order to block the British advance down Lake Champlain towards Albany, the Continental Army posted as many as 15,000 soldiers at Fort Ticonderoga and Fort Independence across the lake. This was the largest American garrison of the fort during the American Revolution.”

The “Struggle for Liberty” event is made possible by funding support from Glens Falls National Bank.
