This is a "must visit" site. The Park Service has done a very good job here, frankly as at so many other sites as well. Found it so easy to time travel backwards and get a feel for the hardships, the countryside, and the frontier of that time. The fighting must have been desperate. It seems like such a lonely spot to fight and be caught up in such a global conflict - yet another war between France and Britain. You have to visit the site.
