Contact: Mike Caldwell, 315-336-3113
Television personality Willard Scott visited Fort Stanwix National Monument this afternoon. Mr. Scott was in the Mohawk Valley as part of the "Celebrate Mohawk Valley" program sponsored by the Genesis Group. Mr. Scott took time to visit with park visitors and park staff as well as give commands to fire the artillery. Several volunteers, the Oneida Indian Nation Living History group, Oneida County Executive Joe Griffo and Rome Mayor Jim Brown were on hand to welcome Mr. Scott to Rome.
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.
