Event at Fort Ticonderoga


Don’t miss the epic two-day 1759 Siege of Carillon Battle Reenactment, July 23-24, as Fort Ticonderoga recreates this dramatic 1759 battle for the first time since 2011! Through a combination of demonstrations, vignettes, and battle reenactments, visitors will experience the British advance for Lake George, pushing through stiff French resistance to gain a foothold upon the previous year’s battlefield, overlooking the French-held fort. Become immersed in this 18th-century siege; featuring the constant roar of cannon, beginning on the actual day French guns began firing from Fort Carillon in 1759.

A special Saturday evening tour of the Siege of Carillon will allow visitors to see British & American provincial soldiers building cannon batteries under fire as French gunners lobbed cannon shots in the twilight of Fort Carillon. **limited tickets, pre-registration required**
Each day tells a different story as visitors see the burning fuse of the fort’s destruction, the final French sortie at the British lines, and evacuation by water in an action-packed Sunday!
Tickets can be purchased by visiting the link in our bio!
