6904: Re: 6853: Citadel, other forts? (fwd)
From: John Munsell <JMunsell@maf.org>
Does anyone know of furthur info on other forts in Haiti. I have seen at
least 17 in our flying around the country, and several other remains
obviously not built in this century. I have photo's of many of them. I'm
sure there are more which I've not seen. Some in OK shape, others I never
would have seen unless I happened to be flying right over them they were so
over-grown. One southeast of Miragouane is quite impressive. Fort Jacques
SE of Port-au-Prince is semi-restored and provides a great view.
Is there any study or info on the rest of the forts in Haiti? I realize
this is WAY down on the priority list for present day Haiti, but it's also
a shame to see so much history crumbling into dust.
