Gary and I enjoy visiting the old forts. This fort was first occupied by the French, then the British. When the French thought heard that George Rogers Clark was capturing other French forts, they decided to move their fort to Mackinac Island. It took them 2 years to dismantle and rebuild the fort on Mackinac Island. What they were not able to move, they burned. The British came along and built a fort on the same location. The fort was a main part of the fur trade. Demonstrations include cannon firing, musket firing, a baggatiway game (Indian), and various staff members who cook and work in the gardens. We got to taste some wonderful pan fried biscuits with homemade butter. Great day.
