American Military Museum

Fort Ticonderoga launches a multi-million dollar fundraising campaign to build a new national war museum. For centuries, since Samuel de Champlain’s exploration in 1609, the lake has been a critical waterway for nations fighting for control of North America. Strategic forts were built on the shores of Lake Champlain at Crown Point & Ticonderoga. Now Fort Ticonderoga wants to be the home of a new national museum that will tell the story of the military battles and history that shaped our nation. United States Senator Chuck Schumer visited the fort recently, and told community leaders he would help them find funding for the proposed museum.
