Fort Ticonderoga features an exciting new artillery exhibit featuring

The Art and Science of Artillery in the 18th Century Fort Ticonderoga’s artillery collection is internationally recognized as the largest and most significant of its kind in North America.

Ticonderoga, NY, 28 July 2016 -- Starting in the 2016 season, Fort Ticonderoga features an exciting new exhibit: The Last Argument of Kings: The Art and Science of Artillery in the 18th Century Fort Ticonderoga’s artillery collection is internationally recognized as the largest and most significant of its kind in North America. This incredible collection has been set dressing to the reconstructed fort since the early 20th century. The Last Argument of Kings exhibit located in the Mars Education Center will reveal the story of these complex weapons through exploring the creation, use, and after lives of these remarkable objects.

Included in this exhibit is one of the rarest American cannons in existence (Byers Howitzer). In addition, rare surviving examples of artillery ammunition and equipment recovered from Fort Ticonderoga and Survivors of Henry's Knox Noble Train of Artillery.

It is the only site in the world that tells a new story each year through dynamic historical interpretation. This year is 1777 at Fort Ticonderoga; a fundamental year in the American Revolution. Guests will discover 1777 as German, Canadian, British, and American soldiers, as well as their native allies, fought to control the vital Lake Champlain corridor.
Daily programming will bring to life this epic story through new programs and exhibits, living history weekends, special events, gardens, the Carillon Battlefield hiking trail, canoe rentals, Mount Defiance, hands-on family activities, and daily boat tours aboard Fort Ticonderoga’s 60 ft. cruise boat, the Carillon. ‘

“Fort Ticonderoga is a family destination and a center for learning. A visit is an interactive, multi-faceted experience,” said Beth Hill, President and CEO. “It’s exploring the beautiful gardens, finding adventure in our events, marching with the Fife and Drum Corps, and learning about a historic trade. Visitors can engage in a number of interactive experiences as they walk through the restored fort, immerse themselves in the history of Lake Champlain on a boat tour, and spend an afternoon in our exhibit galleries exploring our premier collections.”

Hours and Admission:
Fort Ticonderoga is open daily from May 7 through October 16, 2016 from 9:30 am until 5 pm and from October 17 through October 30 from 10 am until 4 pm.
