for the return of Music at the Battlefield at noon on August 23! We will welcome the Fifes & Drums of Fort Ticonderoga to the top of the hill next to the Visitor Center. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the exhilarating sounds along with the beautiful and historic views.
Founded in 1926, the Fifes & Drums of Fort Ticonderoga have played each summer since 1973. They performed at the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid and at the launch of the U.S.S. Ticonderoga in 1981. Today, the Fifes & Drums of Fort Ticonderoga represent military musicians who served at Ticonderoga. Fort Ticonderoga portrays a different year in their history each year and the Fifes & Drums perform as the military musicians of different armies and times. For this visit to Saratoga NHP, they will portray Continental Army artillery corps drummers and fifers. From stirring to somber, enjoy the martial sounds of this band of excellent musicians.
This event was made possible by support from Friends of Saratoga Battlefield.
