The theme for the 2009 “School’s Out at the Fort” series at Fort Stanwix National Monument is “exploring the country from the comfort of Rome.” This year students will have the opportunity to become Junior Rangers at several of our country’s National Parks that commemorate the people and events that accompany a school break.
Did You Know?
Fort Stanwix has two names. Named for Gen. John Stanwix, this was the fort's name under the British. When rebuilt by the Americans, it was then named for Gen. Phillip Schuyler. However, there were several other Fort Schuylers in New York at that time, so the name never stuck due to the confusion.
