Day trip to Fort Macon

Day trip to Fort Macon

Brenda, Martin and I took a day trip to Fort Macon, near Atlantic Beach today. Brenda, during summer vacation, take the kids on field trips to places of interest in North Carolina. I am usually on the road, but today, decided to tag along.

Fort Macon was constructed in the early 18th century. It was occupied for most of the Civil War by the Union army. The fort was also garisoned during the Spainish American War, as well as WWII.

It was intriguing to see how the fort was designed to defend against a number of types of attacks.

Well that all I can type now. My thumbs are beginning to spasm.
