Manning Fort Frederick

915

Description


Fort Frederick in Big Pool, Maryland is the site of the only English, stone-construction frontier fort built during the French & Indian War. The reconstructed fort is the center-piece of Maryland’s Fort Frederick State Park, and, every April it serves as the backdrop for the Fort Frederick 18th Century Market Fair.

During the Fair a group of 18th century military re-enactors man the fort, portraying members of Joshua Beals company of provincial Maryland colony forces.

This video gives you a look at the reenactors and historical interpreters who man the fort today.
