Fort Mifflin

My lady and I visited historic Fort Mifflin today, for the the 231st Anniversary of the Siege of Fort Mifflin. We missed the re-enactment battles, but milling about with the Revolutionary war reenactors was awesome. Awesome.

Fort Mifflin, a keystone of the British conquest of Philadelphia during the American Revolutionary War, is less than 10 minutes from our house and right next to the airport.

The absolute highlight of our visit was hearing that in 2006 this guy was mowing the lawn and fell into a hole that led to prison cells underground that haven't been touched since 1867. Whoa!

Fort Mifflin!

The Siege of Fort Mifflin!

Yes, that's right, Fort Mifflin. I am on the precipice of "Historical Reenactments" which means that I might as well be like, "Hey! See you at Ye Olde Grog tent at the Renaissance Faire." Whatever.
