, thanks for posting about Fort Defiance. It has been years since I have read anything about this Confederate fort. I researched it when I was in graduate school and it became a small part of my thesis on Civil War field fortifications. I knew I was in trouble when I wrote that book, it was 341 pages and I'm still writing way too much today.

Debbie, love history, I just commented on Rebecca Gaujot  post and all I can say is I am so glad there is a revival or should I say a continuation of preserving our history...we have 200+ years and compared to Europe that has 2000+ years it is even more important not to lose it. Endre

Good morning Debbie.  I wonder what would happen if they decide not to surrender on one of these enactments.
