This fort above was built by General Lachlan McIntosh in 1778 on the West Bank of the Tuscarawas river. The fort was intended to be a staging point for an attack against the British garrison at
Detroit. However, the conditions at the fort were harsh during the winter, and McIntosh removed most of the American forces to Fort Pitt, leaving only about 150 men. This fort was the only fort built
in Ohio during the Revolutionary war. Reference: Wikipedia
Large fishing hook found on private property near the towpath, not far from the fort.
Above: I Found this along the canal, a very large slab of lead. Soldiers were issued this for making bullets, the top "floating" piece that's attached was used for
placing onto their muzzle loader, it held the firing flint in place during firing.
I had this horse bit checked for possible dating back to the Revolutionary war considering I recovered it near the fort. It was dated to the canal days. A wonderful find indeed.
