TICONDEROGA, N.Y. (AP) - Fort Ticonderoga is turning back the clock 260 years to tell the story of the historic events depicted in James Fenimore Cooper’s novel “The Last of the Mohicans.”

Each season, the privately-owned historic site on Lake Champlain selects a different year to present it through a historical interpretation.

When the fort opens for the season on Saturday it will be 1757, a pivotal year in the French and Indian War. That’s the year the French captured and burned the British-built Fort William Henry on the southern shore of Lake George.

Each day of the 2017 season, the fort’s exhibits and staff will show how French soldiers and their Indian allies prepared for that campaign.

The fort is open daily through Oct. 29.
