Fort Ticonderoga introduces a rare opportunity Every Thursday during June, July and August, to go beyond the exhibition case to examine and handle original 18th-century weapons with the supervision and knowledge of Fort Ticonderoga’s expert staff. This specialty experience offers participants the opportunity to learn how artisans in Europe and America transformed iron, brass, and wood into weapons that decided empires and revolutions. Feel the bulk and imagine what it was like for the soldiers of the 18th-century to carry these very weapons into battle.
