October, 1776, a few months after the Declaration of Independence Benedict Arnold throws together a small but scrappy naval fleet on Lake Champlain. His mismatched force quickly moves to battle the British at a place called Valcour Island.
Join Lake Champlain Maritime Museum on the water for an adventure to Valcour Bay, where a pivotal battle of the Revolutionary War took place. During this three-day course, participants will examine archaeological resources and consider how they influence the creation of historical knowledge. This course will culminate in the creation of an archaeology lesson plan.
