1812 – Part 16: Aftermath — Fort Henry


It’s the Aftermath of the War of 1812. In 1832 the British are still concerned that the Americans might return to attack Upper Canada. They decide to build Fort Henry to protect the entrance to the Rideau Canal and the Lower Great Lakes. Soldiers and their families move in and experience the discipline of living under British military rule. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Fort and Martello Towers are part of a unique system of interacting arcs of fire.
