Fort Barricade

When a hurricane came upon us in late summer of 2011, we retreated to Pennsylvania for a few days to avoid the power outages and floods. While there, we discovered a place called Fort Ligonier. A well-preserved colonial fort, it includes pikes, barricades and all the amenities of the 1700s.

Louisbourg Fortress

Way back in 2011, we watched a movie called The Song Spinner. Based off a novel by the same name, it was shot in and around a place in Nova Scotia called Louisbourg Fortress. As soon as we saw the place on film, we knew we wanted to visit, and planned an entire trip to Canada because of this move.

It was well wort it!

Fort Ligonier: would you want to attack it?

This colonial fort in Pennsylvania has been preserved as it stood, for several hundred years. The spiked walls are pretty intimidating, I think – I’d think twice before storming this place.
