Regimental Headquarters Fort Wilderness Tom Sawyers Island

A picture of a place that we may not ever see again, the inside of Fort Wilderness. Great image showing the Regimental Headquarters inside the fort. I have very vivid memories of running around Tom Sawyers Island, running across the stockades, shooting the guns, and using the escape tunnel. Now the fort has been closed for many years and just sits there as the worlds best home for termites.

Patrick - thanks for all the hard work you put in on this blog. There are many of this out here who really appreciate the time it takes to do such a great job. Don't get discouraged by the anonymous annoyances.

Anonymous makes me laugh every time! Genius. Anyway, has there ever been an official explanantion as to why the fort was closed? It's such a wonderful part of Tom Sawyer's Island, and yet a fairly benign element. Is it structurally unsound? And finally, thanks as always for sharing these wonderful slides.
