Gun slot at Historic Fort Wayne

Building of this star-shaped fort ( to protect the American from the British Invasion from Canada that never came ) started in 1843 and was completed in 1851. It was named after Revolutionary War hero General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, who had taken possession of Detroit from the British in 1796. Kerry got a great shot inside this extremely dark room. The green in the background ( through the window ) is a steep hill the enemy would have to run down to get towards the Main Door. The view you have is the same the soldiers would have had to fire through.
