The Bones of Fort Defiance

Sunday, August 15, 2021

The Fort Defiance Interpretive Center is honored to host fortification expert, John R. Weaver II.

The presentation will be followed by a walking tour of the fort. Mr. Weaver is a nationally known expert on masonry coastal defenses, and is the author of the highly acclaimed A Legacy in Brick and Stone: Coastal Defense Forts of the American Third System, 1816-1867. He is an active member and former chair of the Coast Defense Study Group, a member of the Council on America’s Military Past, the Treasurer of the Camp Tippecanoe Civil War Roundtable, and a member of several Friends groups of various forts.
