This summer, we became official Friends of Fort Ticonderoga. That’s in part because it’s literally just a quick and lovely ferry ride from our home, but also because Miss Loodyloo loves living history, especially of the colonial persuasion.
So far we have done the Clash of Empires, a regular quiet day visit, and this past weekend, the Struggle for Liberty.
It thrills me that my kid, at age 5, is interested in history as much as I am. Re-enactments are the gateway drug to serious study, you know.
Another reason to be a Friend is that the Fort needs our help. Those chain link fences are supposed to be stone walls, eventually. In fact, the Fort was in total ruin at one point which is difficult to imagine now.
