Fort Gorges

Here are the first batch of fort photos from last weekend's trip to Fort Gorges for the fireworks (transportation provided by the good folk at the Rita B Offshore Fishing boat). As you can see by the sign out front, the fort's construction was started in 1858, and it was completed in 1865. The name of the fort comes from the founder of the Province of Maine,  Ferdinando Gorges
