Fort Ticonderoga has announced a special exhibition of a new painting by internationally renowned historical artist, Don Troiani, depicting the fury of the 1758 Battle of Carillon.
One of Britain’s costliest defeats, nearly 2,000 British and American soldiers were killed or wounded.
This painting is on special display as part of the July 8th Battle of Carillon Commemoration at Fort Ticonderoga.
Don Troiani’s canvas depicts the striking heroism of the officers and men of the 42nd (Highland) Regiment of the British Army as they attacked the French lines on the Heights of Carillon on the afternoon of July 8th, 1758.
In addition to viewing the painting, Fort Ticonderoga brings the battle to life on July 8th as visitors stand on the very ground where the epic Battle of Carillon took place in 1758. Visitors can join the fifes and drums to lay wreaths and remember those who fell in this cataclysmic battle.
The Don Troiani painting Ticonderoga 1758 can be viewed through October 30th, 2022 in the Mars Education Center at Fort Ticonderoga.
