July 25th, 1864 was the centennial anniversary of the first land grants in Ticonderoga that became a permanent settlement. At that time, Joseph Cook delivered a detailed historical address based on his years of research, chronicling the military events of the area during the French & Indian and the Revolutionary War. It was not published then. Here is the first appearance of the address in print, published by the Ticonderoga Historical Society.

Joseph Flavius Cook (1838-1901), b. & d. in Ticonderoga, NY. Cook graduated Harvard College (1865), and was for more than twenty years the lecturer of the Monday noon prayer meetings in Tremont Temple in Boston, said to be one of the city's greatest attractions. His lectures on science and philosophy attempted to reconcile new developments in those fields with Protestant Christianity.
