Fort Ticonderoga and its surrounding grounds are like one big history book. Following its construction by the French in 1755, the strategic military outpost was conquered first by the British and then by American forces—marking one of their earliest victories during the Revolutionary War. After independence was secured, Fort Ticonderoga became one of the country's earliest tourist destinations, and one that continues to draw visitors today with family fun activities. Visitors spend their day discovering the beauty and experiencing the history of Fort Ticonderoga. A new exhibit, The Last Argument of Kings, explores rare surviving examples of artillery that saw action at Fort Ticonderoga.
