“The Great Wars: The French & Indian War and the First World War” will be the focus of the Tenth Annual History Conference for Educators to be held on Friday, May 18, 2018 at Fort Ticonderoga.
Sessions focused on the French & Indian War (known as the Seven Years’ War in Europe) and World War I will answer the question on how global conflict affects local communities. Participants will learn about the scope and impact of “Great Wars” on society in general through the study of primary accounts.
This year’s conference coincides with the opening of a major new exhibition “Great Wars: Ticonderoga and World War I” that will forge connections between the core stories of Fort Ticonderoga in the 18th century with the centennial of the First World War. The exhibit will utilize artifacts, documents, and photographs never before displayed.
Pre-registration to attend the conference is required. The cost is $45 per person. Registration forms can be downloaded from Fort Ticonderoga’s website.
