#2961: Auguste comments on two historical forts
Keyword: Marchand Dessalines, Historical forts. Historical sites. Military
While heading north from Port-au-Prince.
After you leave Saint Marc and before Gonaives, take to the right the road
heading to Marchand Dessalines. Prior to entering Marchand Dessalines you
will see on both sides of the road on mountain tops, forts constructed by
Dessalines to protect the approach to the town where he resided. The forts
are in ruin but worth the sight. Ask questions about them from the people in
the area. Those forts seemed to be well kept secrets of Haitian history.
J-R. B. Auguste
