Military forts along our coastlines stand as sentinels over the security of our shores. They also provide a place to envision the unfolding of our history and the development of our national identity. From the first western settlers seeking safety in an unfamiliar land, to the revolutionary war that established a new democracy, to civil war that pitted brother against brother… through World Wars, a Cold War and beyond, national parks along our coasts and Great Lakes preserve places that both witnessed and influenced key military events that shaped our nation.
