I’m not going to inundate you with information, but I will post some pictures for your viewing pleasure of our latest excursion, the Historic FortMonroe in Phoebus,Virginia.
Fort Monroe, the place where slavery (beginning and end) came full circle and the place where Jefferson Davis was imprisoned, not to mention the protector of the Chesapeake Bay is now a National Monument due to Presidential declaration and is in the process of becoming a National Park. “The park service will manage 325 acres of the 565-acre property, including the largest moated stone fort ever built in the United States. A state entity, Fort Monroe Authority, will oversee the rest.” http://hamptonroads.com/2011/11/fort-monroe-national-park-be-led-longtime-fan
