— Fort Stanwix National Monument —

Fort Stanwix is best known for the 1777 siege, but such dramatic events were not a feature of everyday life here.

Limited space inside the fort forced some soldiers and a few of their wives and children to live outside the walls. A unique community formed outside the fort.

Working for daily rations, the women and children did laundry, nursing, and the most menial tasks, forming the backbone of day-to-day life.

They are the unsung heroes in the history of Fort Stanwix.
