Places

"...the post at the Oneida Carrying Place, is in all Respects and Circumstances to be considered as a Fort, as it partakes, not only the figure, and the respective parts of a Fort, but even the Permanent Intentions of a Fortress." -Brigadier General John Stanwix to Captain William Green, 1758
