Nice photo of the fort, George. It's hard for me to realize that two hundred years ago we would have been on opposite sides. I'm glad we live now. ;-)

Interesting history. Amazing that it was captured and recaptured, all in one year.

Beautiful view. Looking at something different here for the first time apart from the nature.

George, I hope that I also should have a fort with my name. You are lucky one.
