Unfortunately, most of the original fort has long since disappeared. Keep in mind that Fort Carillon/Ticonderoga changed hands many times in the course of its useful life. Much of it was blown up by the French retreating from Amherst in 1759. The British kept a small garrison at the fort previous to its capture by Allen and Arnold, while the Americans occupied the site and constructed extensive outworks prior to losing it again to the British under Burgoyne in 1777. The famous (and sometimes controversial) reconstruction we now know as Ticonderoga is a reconstruction created during the early years of the 20th Century.
