I discovered your site by accident! I like sites like this that remembers history by educating the public that events happened! I was born in a American town named after Lord Ligonier! A recreation of a early pre colonial fort is built on the exact site of the original fort of the 1700's Some call it living history rather than remembrance! Contact me if you want information!
