Watch History Come Alive This July 4 Weekend: The History of Independence Day

Yes, they’ll be parades, cookouts, hot dogs and fireworks, as we celebrate July 4th this weekend. But how did this day come to be?  You can relive the defining moments in America’s history at Fort Ticonderoga, just a skip and a jump over the mountain from Schroon.

This weekend you can witness the fight for liberty, when the continental army fought to hold the line for independence at the great fortress Ticonderoga.


From Fort Ti:

“Thrill at the power of artillery during cannon demonstrations and march to the beat of the Fife and Drum Corps as they perform patriotic music throughout the weekend. Admission to this special holiday living history event is included in a Fort Ticonderoga general admission ticket.”
