My friend Brian Laing is not only a dedicated vet but is writing a historical novel based on events in the fascinating history of Old Fort Niagara and the Iriquois and from what I have read of it, it’s going to be a great read so I’ll keep you posted! Also he set a challenge once in Writewords, based on a tunnel here and I wrote my story PENUMBRA based on that photo — here’s me with the tunnel in the background way to the right. So Brian took us to this fantastic fort so that we could share in that history and since I had read several chapters of the book already, I really had a feel for what is there. We love history and this was our third American Fort — Fort McHenry, Fort Snelling and now Fort Niagara — each is unique, all are incredible to visit.
This day we had a musket demonstration from the very knowledgable Mr. Clark here above and so much to see!
I can’t do this justice. Do follow the links above and read all about it and iof you live near or get the chance, go see for yourself.
