My Trip To Fort Laurens

On Friday morning I took Little Conte to Fort Laurens.   We walked along the outline of the old fort, toured the museum, took pictures and bought a few souvenirs.  Among those souvenirs is a coloring book filled with examples of late 1700’s military uniforms.  Coloring contest anyone?

The museum is small, but extremely interesting, particularly because of all that you have been studying.

If you do decide to visit the site, be sure to spend a quiet moment at the tomb of the unknown soldier.  Take time to retrace the outline of the old fort.  As you walk the grounds think about the men who fought there.  You just might walk over the very spot Simon Girty stood, or past the spot where one of our great colonial soldiers took his last breath.
