"Revolutionary War Remnants"

A piece of Connecticut's remarkable history, Fort Nathan Hale chronicles myriad tales of the iconic Revolutionary and Civil wars. Fort Nathan Hale is a recreation of a military fort called Black Rock Fort from the Revolutionary War that was built in 1776 in order to protect the area from the British, although the fort ended up being captured anyway in 1779. Having faced the many ravages of time, the fort was rebuilt as Fort Nathan Hale, again, as a defense against the British in the War of 1812. Today, the fort is housed in a rolling, eponymous park, named after Connecticut's official state hero. Perched on the shores of New Haven Harbor, this antiquated site features a tapestry of monuments like the statue of Nathan Hale, a powder magazine and a memorial court where replicas of colonial-era flags flutter in all their glory. Enlisted on the National Register of Historic Places, this historic site has established itself as an unforgettable landmark of Connecticut.
