June 12, 1781You are standing in a partial reconstruction of the Stockade Fort as it appeared in 1781. Archaeologists have identified remnants — see the outlines — of log buildings that existed here. An elevated firing step, called a banquette, was located at the base of the palisade wall. Step up to the banquette before you and peer through the vertical wooden posts. This is the view Loyalist soldiers had as they stood guard over the town of Ninety Six.
