Star Fort

I was pleased to read in a local paper that the Star Fort in Winchester will be preserved. The Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation now owns the property and is preparing to put up a fence and begin restoration.

I was at Star Fort on a field trip in 2004 and it was apparent then that the fort was suffering. It looked neglected and development was encroaching on it. Since then, it has suffered erosion from all terrain vehicles being driven on it.

These are pictures I took there in 2004. There are more on my Civil War field trip site.
