Refer to part 1 of this two-part posting on our visit to Fort George. Click here for part 1.
There was an underground tunnel next to the Powder Magazine building allowing you to travel to the other side of the battle field. I do not care to be enclosed so I was not crazy about walking through the tunnel – but I did it!
Below is the Powder Magazine building where they stored their ammunition. It was built down within a valley in case there was an explosion the earth surrounding the building would protect the troops. Hopefully the pictures shows this depth. There was an attack on the fort where a cannon ball fired from Fort Niagara did hit the powder magazine building threatening to destroy all of the ammunition. The soldiers had to wear special clothing into this building to avoid any “sparks” from their clothing.
