Daughters of the American Revolution
Ticonderoga, New York
One of 3,000 DAR chapters worldwide, the Ticonderoga Chapter, of the Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized on June 30, 1911, and chartered July 19, 1922.
Ticonderoga is located in the historic town of Ticonderoga, New York. Ticonderoga figured prominently in the American Revolution as well as the French & Indian War.
Ticonderoga is home to the strategically important Fort Ticonderoga, site of the colonists' first victory in the American Revolution. On May 10, 1775, Benedict Arnold, along with Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys, captured the fort from the British. Later that year, Henry Knox dragged the cannon from the fort on sledges to Dorchester Heights in Boston, an extraordinary feat which caused the British to evacuate Boston Harbor.
Picturesque Ticonderoga is located on the shores of Lake Champlain and Lake George, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. In 1791, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson journeyed here. In his diary, Jefferson wrote that “Lake George is without comparison the most beautiful water I ever saw. Its water is limpid as crystal and the mountainsides are covered with rich groves of fir, pine, aspen and birch down to the water's edge.” His description holds true to this day. Every year, countless tourists come from all over the world to visit our historic sites and to enjoy our scenic beauty. We are proud and thankful to live in such a special place.
