From the Adirondacks to the Artic and Beyond

May 6, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of Floyd Bennett and Admiral Byrd’s 1926 historic – and controversial flight to the North Pole, the Ticonderoga Historical Society is presenting a pre-seasonal opening view of a new exhibit “From the Adirondacks to the Artic and Beyond” followed by a speaker’s presentation of Bennett’s  life and accomplishments by the society’s president, William Dolback.  This anniversary event will further the exploration theme by chronicling the role the  USS Ticonderoga (CVS-14) played in space craft recovery for the Apollo and Skylab programs.

 

An invitation is extended to view the exhibit first at 6 PM followed by the speakers presentation at 7 PM.

 

Light refreshments will be served and there is no admission fee.  However, donations are gladly appreciated.
