Fort Ticonderoga was first built by the French, captured by the British, captured by the Americans, and then taken by the British again. It was the place where Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain boys captured the British cannon and hauled them all the way to Boston to help Washington during the Revolutionary war. Every time a different army captured the fort, the conquered army destroyed the fort. The fort was rebuilt from some of the rubble in the early 1900s as people in the 1800s began to visit it as a major tour attraction. It was later purchased and the restoration began. We really liked the museum. Lots of powder horns on exhibit. The colonial soldiers decorated their powder horns.
