7:00-7:45pm Between the Wars: Ticonderoga at Peace, Part 1—Following its capture from the French in 1759, Fort Ticonderoga transitioned from the objective of successive British campaigns to another garrison to be maintained. Even after the Seven Years’ War ended, British policy after 1763 called for the rotation of troops through American posts, producing a steady stream of soldiers at the old French fort above Lake Champlain until the American Revolution, the longest period any power held the fort. Fort Ticonderoga’s Curator, Dr. Matthew Keagle, traces the first period of this occupation from 1759 through a major shift in imperial strategy in 1768, and explores this often neglected period in Fort Ticonderoga’s active history.
