A REAL-LIFE ACTION ADVENTURE!

Fort Ticonderoga Presents the Brown's Raid 1777 Battle Re-enactment Sept 14-15

(Ticonderoga, NY) An attack led by patriot Colonel John Brown will take British troops garrisoning Fort Ticonderoga by surprise (again) 236 years later during the upcoming real life action adventure at Fort Ticonderoga on Saturday and Sunday, September 14-15, from 9:30am- 5pm.

The living history weekend and battle re-enactment will for the first time ever recreate what has become known as Brown's Raid. Historic interpreters and re-enactors from across the northeast will bring to life the little known 1777 action adventure story pulled straight from the pages of Fort Ticonderoga's history. During the dramatic event, Fort Ticonderoga's guests will witness first hand the high stakes mission undertaken by Colonel John Brown and his patriot militia and meet the larger-than-life characters that undertook this daring raid during special programs in the British held Fort and the American camps throughout the weekend. The Brown's Raid battle re-enactment will take place each day at 1:30 pm when the raiders will rush forward against the British held lines, overlooking Fort Ticonderoga. Can the patriot militia capture Fort Ticonderoga or will the British and German soldiers hold the Fort?

"Brown's Raid will be a busy weekend of programs and demonstrations. Military activities include demonstrations of artillery firing, inspection of troops, and musket drill and firing," said Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga President and CEO. "Fort Ticonderoga guests will step into the moment in 1777 in the American camp and British Fort and be an eyewitness to the command discussions and decisions during this must-experience weekend event."

Admission to Brown's Raid is included in the general admission ticket. For event details visit www.fort-ticonderoga.org http://www.fort-ticonderoga.org/ or call 518-585-2821.
