So I am placing a few snaps here as they may be of interest to others. Some of these sites are best viewed in seasons other than Winter....
First up, Fort Necessity, a bad day for Washington.
|Ft Necessity: A hasty fortification build by Washington to hold off French colonial forces.|
|A swivel gun, as part of the reconstructed fort.|
|Glove for scale.|
|The story of Braddock's burial.|
|A section of Braddock's road - a pathway on the original lay of the road.|
|The marker at the original grave site.|
|The present monument.|
I also managed a trip to Valley Forge - winter being a suitable time to visit, but unfortunately not the right time of year to visit the Brandywine battlefield museum.
And of course, another site with a link to George Washington!
|I can relate to this - I am currently making an AWI force.|
|Bayonets - a useful weapon in the AWI. Not having one was a major disadvantage.|
|A reconstruction of one of the Valley Forge cabins.|
|How could this plan possibly fail?|
