Fort Bull event May 27
The Fort Bull Research Group will present a program on the history of Fort Bull at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 27, at the Rome Historical Society, 200 Church St. This presentation is a part of the French and Indian War Weekend activities both at the Society and at Fort Stanwix National Monument.
Fort Bull was one of many forts constructed during the French and Indian War to protect the Oneida Carry, a portage route that was located between the Mohawk River and Wood Creek in Rome.
Some of the themes that will be covered include the importance of the Oneida Carrying Place during the French and Indian War and a history of its fortifications, the magnitude of the troop movements to and through the Carrying Place, how this foreshadowed the western movement of the United States, and the history of the Fort Bull/Fort Wood Creek site after the Revolution to the present.
The Fort Bull Research Group is a volunteer organization that maintains and preserves the Rome Historical Society’s Fort Bull property, containing the remnants of Fort Wood Creek.
