The second half of Season 2 gets under way with a great conversation with our very good friend, Rob Ambrose. Rob is a Park Ranger who wears many different hats for Fort Frederick State Park, which is the site of the French and Indian War era stone fortification known as Fort Frederick. About 20 miles west of Hagerstown, Maryland and just a mile off of the Rt. 70 exit at Big Pool & Indian Springs, is the location of one of the coolest historical sites you likely never have heard of... well... WE ARE ABOUT TO CHANGE ALL THAT!
Rob was gracious enough to bring to podcast life his living history program that he puts on annually known as "One Fort, Three Wars." Built by the English during the mid 1750s, Rob takes us through the old stone forts history and its experience as "edge of the world," fort through the French and Indian war, its use as a prison (think Andersonville from the American Civil War) during the American Revolution, and as a place for Federal soldiers to loosely use and harass Confederate troops and cavalry across the Potomac River on and off during the American Civil War!
