Past and Present Fortifications at Kingston (The)
Past and Present Fortifications at Kingston (The). The area around Kingston has been recognized as a good defensive position from as early as the conflict between France and Britain over the rights to colonize N. America. As a consequence forts have located here since earliest times. The military importance of Kingston peaked during the war of 1812 although the fortifications were maintained for many years after this. Written mainly to advocate the preservation of these historically important sites this paper provides a good grounding in the military history of Kingston.
