An exciting adventure series set during the French and Indian War.
Ticonderoga tells the story of Captain William Taylor and his Mohawk scout Degadawidah who are charged to escort Captain Carlton Campbell of the 42nd Highlanders through the dangerous lands of the Huron to Fort Edward, where the British are making plans to march on the French held Ticonderoga. On the journey they meet young orphan Adam Cobbs who receives a baptism by fire in the harsh and bloody wilderness of New York State.
With drums beating and bagpipes wailing, Ticonderoga is a musket blasting adventure on the epic scale that The Colonial Radio Theatre has become known for.

This is a story about the colonial times. some of events mentioned are actually factual, but the story is obviously fictional. the four characters are a good mixture to the story. there is humor but yet seriousness to the story. you will enjoy it!
Danger Adventure honor
I loved learning the history of that area of the country, I learned about an area of our great nation that I didnt know much about.Friendships were formed from unlikely sources.Human spirit proved to be what formed our country, sacrifices were made by all.
I have listened to several Colonial Radio Theatre productions, This one is my favorite, but thats only because it is the one that got me started listening, CRT has several exciting productions that I love and they are coming out with more all the time.
Captain William Taylor, (Jerry Robbins) As Captain Taylor Id love to hear storys of his adventures, As Jerry Robbins Id love to know how CRT started.And who and what inspired him to start CRT.
Very dramatic keeps you on the edge of your seat never a dull moment.Well written and performed by the whole cast.
Lock, Stock, and Barrel. Ticonderoga is a perfect introduction to the French & Indian War.
One of the most memorable moments in Ticonderoga is when the boy Adam realizes what is in the well, and how it effects his life. And how lucky he is to be in the company of men who understand. Brilliantly done CRT.
Captain William Taylor performed by Jerry Robbins is my favorite. I can most identify with the character's leadership and how he handles situations and men. I'm a former military man and Mr. Robbins did a thorough and realistic job of portraying his character.

This CRT production has a high replay factor. Excellent for long trips, either in the car or on foot.
The whole recording is great but the final battle had me running for cover. Turn up the surround and be ready for a unique experience
If you like Colonial Radio Theater this is the best! If you like adventure and excitement with history thrown in then this is for you. Love it
The story and acting were all horrible. It felt like an after school special version of an audible book. It included silly dialogue and stilted acting.
Have less ridiculous dialogue that was less like a bad 1970's tv special.
The actors playing the part seemed to have an odd style. This was not really so much a narration as an acting with sound effects thrown in. It was jarringly poorly done.
I prefer a story read by talented actors to something acted out as a TV story without visuals.
