1761The trench that ran here, from the fort to the stockaded town, was not actually covered, but was used for cover. It was the route for official couriers, Loyalist relief troops, and slaves who risked Patriot fire to bring water from Spring branch to the Star Fort. With walls only three feet high, they had to crouch low to get through the passage unharmed.
