Commemorations for the 250th anniversary of the American War for Independence are underway at Fort Ticonderoga. The museum has started developing plans and exploring partnerships at the state and national levels to mark this historic anniversary.
Through exhibits, events, publications, and programs, Fort Ticonderoga seeks to increase access and awareness and expand educational impact related to the monumental history of the complex struggle to achieve independence.
Recently, Fort Ticonderoga joined state and national representatives from the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) to dedicate an America 250 Patriots Marker on the grounds of Fort Ticonderoga. This is the first marker of its kind in New York, part of a national initiative by the DAR to commemorate those who fought for independence.
Representatives at the unveiling included Patrice Birner, State Regent, New York State Organization National Society Daughters of the American Revolution; Denise VanBuren, President General, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution; and Laura Kessler, Historian General, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.
