TEASERJAN26-2016-1

It is a grand photo of Fort Niagara………..just as many of you guessed!   Here’s some info Sarge shared about the Fort:

Located at the confluence of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario, the site was vital as it controlled access to the Great Lakes and the westward route to the heartland of North America.

Today, the three flags flown daily above the parade ground symbolize the nations which have held Fort Niagara. Each competed for the support of a fourth nation: the powerful Iroquois Confederacy. The French established the first post here, Fort Conti, in 1679. Its successor, Fort Denonville (1687-88) was equally short lived. In 1726 France finally erected a permanent fortification with the construction of the impressive “French Castle.” Britain gained control of Fort Niagara in 1759, during the French & Indian War, after a nineteen-day siege. The British held the post throughout the American Revolution but were forced, by treaty, to yield it to the United States in 1796. Fort Niagara was recaptured by the British in 1813. It was ceded to the United States a second time in 1815 at the end of the War of 1812.  This was Fort Niagara’s last armed conflict, and it thereafter served as a peaceful border post.  The completion of the Erie Canal in 1825 provided a water route to the Upper Great Lakes, bypassed Niagara Falls and ended nearly 200 years of trade along the Niagara Passage.

The garrison expanded beyond the walls following the American Civil War. Fort Niagara was a barracks and training station for American soldiers throughout both World Wars. The last army units were withdrawn in 1963. Today, the U.S. Coast Guard represents the only military presence on the site.  Old Fort Niagara was restored between 1926 and 1934.  Fort Niagara State Park was established in 1947.

Here are two other photos he sent for the Tell All:
