May 10, 1775 Fort Ticonderoga taken by Ethan Allen.
When Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys, accompanied by Benedict Arnold, silently rowed across Lake Champlain and captured the fort in a swift, late-night surprise attack. The capture was the first offensive victory for American forces. In addition to the fort itself, Arnold captured a vast amount of artillery which would later be transported by Henry Knox to Dorchester Heights and force the British to retreat from Boston.
