History Around Us: Fort Loudoun

   Just some pictures of a quick trip I took today to a British fort site not far from where I live. The most interesting detail is that the first uprising against the British by James Smith and the Black Boys took place at this location. The movie Alleghany Uprising starring John Wayne is based on this historical event. More information about this event in history can be found here. http://www.2ndamendmentpa.com/2010/08/james-smith-conococheague-rangers-1763.html
