37376Fort St. Joseph Pictures
- Sep 1, 2008Hello list!
I had the opportunity this weekend to visit the site/ruins of Fort St.
Joseph near Sault Ste. Marie.
This is where Captain Roberts of the 10th RVB left to capture Fort
Michlimackinac at the opening of the War of 1812. The fort was burned
by the Americans in 1814 and never restored.
It is in a very remote location - about a half hour off of the highway
with the exit a further half hour drive from Sault Ste. Marie. It is
on a promonotory on the southern most tip of the very large and scenic
St. Joseph Island.
I thought that not many list members would ever have an opportunity to
visit this site and have made available my photo album in Flickr.
Please follow the link:
If it does not work or you can not reconstruct it, let me know off line
and I will be happy to email you the link.
