Fort Ticonderoga’s “Fort Fever Series” continues on Sunday, February 12th, at 2 pm with “Vive le Roi! French Regiments at Carillon,” presented by Senior Director of Interpretation, Stuart Lilie.
Most Americans have heard of the Black Watch and Inneskilling Regiments who served the British army at Ticonderoga. Much less well-known are the regimental histories and traditions of the French army.
During this “Fort Fever” program, Lilie will trace the history of the French army regiments who served at Carillon (later named Ticonderoga) by exploring their lineage and traditions that continue today.
Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at the gate; Fort Ticonderoga Members and Ambassador Pass Holders are admitted free of cost. The program will take place in the Mars Education Center.
