A Date with Brown Bess

In 1774, the British troops at Fort Ticonderoga carried a version of the famous “Brown Bess” musket. But what’s the real story behind this iconic firearm? In this one-of-a-kind behind the scenes, hands-on program, get up close and personal with Fort Ticonderoga Curator, Dr. Matthew Keagle, to really understand “Brown Bess” revealing the industrial systems employed that developed the weapons used to conquer the world in the 18th century. See real artifacts up close, and under careful supervision, handle original weapons from Fort Ticonderoga’s collection.

This specialty program is limited to 5 participants, ages 16+, and able to lift at least 20 pounds.
