I never heard of this fort before visiting. We took the guided tour and it was very informative and we learned a lot of history. We plan on going back!

it was a cool rainy day, I was in a wheelchair but the guide insisted he could help with the wheelchair and I really would enjoy the tour. Thanks to him I did enjoy every minute of that tour. A GREAT historic experience!!!
