Tuesdays Are Still "Fun At the Fort"
Contact: Valerie Morgan, 315-338-7730
The first three weeks of August 1777 weren’t much fun for the American troops inside Fort Stanwix, or for the British troops trying to capture the fort. The staff and volunteers of Fort Stanwix National Monument invite you to make these same three weeks in August 2008 "fun at the fort!"
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.
