Tower (2 Photos) / by Dave Hileman

The log structure reconstruction is a rifle tower that the Patriot troops built to fire into the Star Fort held by the Loyalists in Ninety Six, SC. I had never heard about these being used before the visit to this park. It makes sense but is was a difficult thing to build with-in easy firing distance of the fort. The second photo is one of those neat things you find occasionally like the road Washington marched to Yorktown - a least a portion of it, is found is some woods behind a shopping center in Williamsburg. This road was the one the Patriot Army marched on to arrive at the battlefield.
