USA ~ Fort Stanwix National Monument Rome - NY ~

... Great aerial view of a colonial fort known today as "the fort that never surrendered"... designed in the shape of a four-pointed star... some 250-plus years later, Fort Stanwix is a standing reminder of its rich history... it’s like a time machine, seeing the military arms, clothing, hardware, Indian artifacts and furnishings from the French and Indian War and the American Revolutionary War periods that take you back in history.... the monument welcomes thousands of daily visitors to its grounds... there are a lot of special events and programs... postmarked with a cancellation from the site itself,👍 what makes it even more special... Big Thanks once more Andrene!!(✿ ♥‿♥)
Fort Stanwix National Monument that visitors experience today is relatively modern, built between 1974 and 1976 as a modified reconstruction of the original fort, based on the conjectural location of the 18thC earth and timber fort which previously stood on the site.

The site is historically significant from 1758 to 1781 for its associations with the American Revolution. Named for General John Stanwix, the Fort was built by the British to protect the portage between the Mohawk River and Wood Creek in New York during the French and Indian War.
