On this Independence Day, Fort Ticonderoga looks back to 1775, the year of the revolutionary war before the Declaration of Independence. Come see the Connecticut state soldiers who garrisoned Fort Ticonderoga in 1775, long before a formal declaration of war, or of national independence for 13 united colonies.
