Stephen D. Mecredy tells the story of Fort Henry, the people and events--hangings, escapes, cholera outbreaks--involved in its colourful past.
Fort Henry, with its massive limestone walls and elegant Martello towers, was once central to the defence of Canada; today, its precision drill and battle reenactments attract visitors from the world over. This book offers a richly illustrated guide to the fort: its history is shown in dramatic photographs and rare nineteenth-century prints and paintings, while an illustrated walking tour takes the visitor through the main rooms at the site.
Fort Henry: An Illustrated History is a handsomely illustrated glimpse into the past that shows how the fort was experienced by those who garrisoned and preserved it.
