Fort Fever Series to begin next week

Fort Ticonderoga is offering history buffs, gardeners, or the intellectually curious a series of events to stave off cabin fever and the winter blues.

The fort has announced this year’s line-up for its Fort Fever Series, which runs from January through April.

The programs are offered once a month by Fort Ticonderoga staff and take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoons.

The series kicks off on Jan. 13 as Chris Fox, curator of collection gives a presentation on “The Realities of War.” Using petitions filed by Massachusetts Provincials following their service in the French and Indian War, Fox will talk about their experiences at the fort, then called Fort Carillon, during the French and Indian War in 1758.

On Feb. 10, Heidi Karkoski, curator of landscape, will lead an “Exploration on Snow Shoes: A Timeline of Trees on the Pavilion Landscape. Karkoski will provide information on trees planted on the grounds. Attendees must provide their own snowshoes.

On March 17, Rich Strum, director of education, will give a presentation on “Evacuation Day 1776,” which details the British occupation of Boston and their eventual departure during the American Revolution.

The final presentation will occur on April 21 as Stuart Lilie, director of interpretation, leads a tour entitled “Very well prepared for the British Army.” The tour will focus on the fortifications built there in 1776.

The cost to attend any Fort Fever series event is $10 and is payable at the door. Members of the Friends of Fort Ticonderoga are free.
