Fort Ticonderoga

Description

General George Washington thought Fort Ticonderoga to be an impregnable fortification, and an overland attack from the North unlikely. After Burgoyne occupied nearby Fort Crown Point without opposition on June 30, he prepared to beseige Ticonderoga. Burgoyne realized the tactical advantage of high ground, and had his troops heaul cannons to the top of Mount Defiance. Faced with bombardment from the heights, even before any shots had been fired, General St. Clair ordered his troops to abandon Ticonderoga on July 5, 1777.
