9:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Spend a day at Fort Ticonderoga and take part in a series of programs including historic trades, tours, garden programs and more designed for homeschool families. While interacting with French soldiers, students can ask about the life at the 18th-century fort. During the day, students can learn about the French General Montcalm who used the new Fort Carillon as the base from which he launched his attack on Fort William Henry. Interacting with these French soldiers, students can ask about the life of an 18th-century soldier. What did he eat? Where did he sleep? What did he wear? Where did his clothes come from? Students can explore the fort and museum exhibitions. They can take guided tours, learn about the fort's history, and observe musket and cannon demonstrations. They can visit the historic trades shops, where shoes and clothing are produced by the fort's staff, and learn about the global economy of the 1770s.
