Topic: Colonial Castles: The Siege of Fort Ticonderoga, 1777
241 years ago today, the Americans lost Fort Ticonderoga during the American Revolutionary War. Here is that story.
I had the idea for this video a year or two ago when Tom Scott was looking for submissions for guest videos. It wasn't accepted but I'd wanted to do it anyway. Thanks to Regan for feedback on the script and edit (even if it was just "it's good").
If this gets good traffic and interest, I kind of want to do stories at other forts as well. Not necessarily full histories (I summarize Ticonderoga's history in the first paragraph) but an interesting story from colonial era forts. There are a few in easy driving distance from me I'd go to next, so we'll see.
