About the Fort

Constructed between October 1755 and 1757 during the
French and Indian War, Fort Ticonderoga is a large 18th-century star
fort built by the French near the south end of Lake Champlain, in
northern New York. The Capture of Fort Ticonderoga occurred during the
American Revolutionary  War on May 10, 1775, when a small
force of Green Mountain Boys led by Ethan Allen and Col Benedict Arnold
surprised and captured the Fort’s small British garrison. The cannons
were then transported to Boston by Col Henry Knox and used to fortify
Dorchester Heights and break the standoff at the Siege of Boston.
The
capture of the Fort marked the beginning of offensive action taken by
the Americans against the British.
