Come visit 1775 as a soldier garrisoning Fort Ticonderoga. Kids learn all about what it was really like to be a soldier on the Lake Champlain frontier during the American Revolution. What was daily life like? What did you have to carry around with you? Pounds and pounds of stuff. Kids get to touch representative objects like blankets, food, soap, canteens, gunpowder and writing notebooks, and try on clothing.  Kids learn about the purpose and function of each item and big ideas about what it was to serve  in America’s War for Independence. It was a very big deal to equip and feed an army in a remote location. $5 suggested donation.
