Photographer's Note

Fort McClary in Kittery Point, Maine was originally named Fort Williams in 1715. This site was initially defended by Mainers against tax duties imposed by the state of New Hampshire. Fort McClary was named after a New Hampshire native, Major Andrew McClary, who died during the Revoltionary War at the Battle of Bunker Hill. Fort McClary saw action in five wars, from the American Revolution to World War I. The site has been used for nearly 275 years to protect the approaches to the Piscataqua River. The fort is one of the state’s most important historic forts and preserves evidence of military history and changes in military architecture and technology. This photo shows one of the Fort’s underground entrances/exits.
