Great! Glad you are a fan of Northern Dept 1777, but Ticonderoga's story, museum, academic programs, and collections are far more than the Saratoga campaign. Look forward to engaging you in

... in anticipation of Saint Patrick's Day, this week's comes from the cap of the Montgomery Guards! Formed in Boston in 1837 of naturalized Irishmen, they paid homage to the Irish role in the Revolution by naming themselves after General Richard Montgomery!

Happy ! While 18th-centuries stories at Fort Ticonderoga remain paramount, the immense restoration of this critical site stands today as a testament to co-founder Sarah G. T. Pell.

Our detail comes from a 1769 Dublin edition of "Journals of Major Robert Rogers". Between 1769 and 1770 at least three printings were made in Ireland of the account of the French and Indian War. This copy is the rarest and perhaps the first of those editions.

This week's comes from a powder horn! This horn appears to have been owned by Robert Rogers, as the horn is engraved with "Wm WHITE ROBERT RODGERS his horn Fort Wm henry June ye 3d 1756". The carving is identifiable to John Bush, a soldier of African descent.
