Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers focused on the role of Fort Ticonderoga and the northern frontier as a critical outpost in the early years of the Revolution.

Fort Ticonderoga, often called the "Key to a Continent" and the "Gibraltar of the North," played a vital role in the strategies of both the British and Continental armies during the first three years of the American Revolution. The importance of the Northern Theater from 1775 to 1777 is often overlooked, overshadowed by events in Boston (1775-76), New York (1776), and eastern Pennsylvania (1776-77). We invite educators to come explore the amazing history behind these first years of the Revolution. In addition to studying the important role Fort Ticonderoga, Lake Champlain, and the northern frontier played during the war, participants will explore the influence of the French & Indian War, the people involved on both sides of the Revolution, the sometimes-overlooked role Benedict Arnold played in those early years, the immediate and long-term impact of the Saratoga Campaign, and the lasting legacies of the northern campaigns on the Revolution.
