How did the redcoats get their guns? How heavy was a “Brown-Bess” and is that even the right term? Get the answers to these and more questions with Fort Ticonderoga Curator Matthew Keagle in this one-of-a-kind, hands-on program. After you receive training in handling artifacts, this program allows you to handle original weapons from Fort Ticonderoga’s collections. Go beyond the exhibit case to follow the evidence on the artifacts that reveal the industrial systems employed by the British military to develop the weapons used to conquer the world in the name of his majesty in the 18th century. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
