Our Visit To Fort Loudon

The last place we took Auntie Iddgy and Granddad was Fort Loudon, which is a fort built around the time of the French & Indian War in a vital part of Cherokee country.

We packed a picnic lunch and then toured the fort, where we met an Indian Maiden re-enactor who taught the Cherubs to make corn husk dolls, and where we also met 2 British Soldier re-enactors who spent a lot of time teling us all about the people who lived there and about the weapons the soldiers used, ending with a test-fire. It was all very interesting.

We ended our visit to Fort Loudon with some swimming in the beautiful lake, which everyone enjoyed.
