Fort Independence Boston, Ma

History of Fort Independence

Rodman Gun Placement
Bastition A

In the above video, the entrance is from the upper rampart of the Fort out to Gun Placement for a 15-inch Rodman Cannon. The Cannon was used in the Civil War era and could fire a 400lb cannon ball over three miles. With the Fort built next to Boston Harbor, the location controlled all ships trying to gain access to Boston Neck.

All events are very much weather-dependent.
