This tower fort was constructed on Tybee Island in 1815 and was used as a lookout station when this picture was taken.
This is an 1841 6 Pound Cannon, the smallest sized cannon used in the Civil War. A seven man gun crew operated it.
Army regulations allowed hiring up to four laundresses per company. These were often the wives of enlisted men or civilian women who lived near the fort. At Fort Macon, the pay was $1 per month per soldier plus a food ration.
The re-enactors at this replica of a 1715 British Fort at the north end of the Lower Peninsula, MI really help explain how it was to live back then.
The British disassembled their 1715 fort at this location to reuse the materials when they rebuilt it across the straight on Mackinac Island. The current fort is a replica.
