The American side
The Colonists needed ammunition and arms that were at Fort Ticonderoga. American soldiers ceased the fort with out killing anyone. The American's had 168 mountain men and militia from New England. Things like cannons taken from the fort helped Americans fight the British in Boston. This was a familiar fort victory for the American side.
Fort Ticonderoga was Fort Carillon built by the French before taken over by the Britsh. Fort Ticonderoga was guarded by 4,000 soldiers. This Fort was a star fort in the 18th century and where the Britsh kept cannons and arms. The British had the fort 2 times and the American's had it 2 time too. The famous battle for Fort Ticonderoga took place May 10, 1775.
