Fort Roberdeau ~ Part Two

Last week I started a series on Fort Roberdeau....a fort built to protect a lead mining operation during the American Revolution.  We visited the officer's quarters.

This week we will visit the storehouse where the supplies were kept and the barracks where the enlisted soldiers stayed. 

 








 the linen siene for fishing.

close-up ~ I liked the texture


Next is the barracks where the enlisted soldiers stayed. 



 comfy bed huh????



Notice they didn't have nice plank floors like the officer's did. 



 Perhaps the type of lantern they used. 

Ok that's all for today. Sorry if I gave you picture overload.

If you missed last week's part one and are interested here is the link.

a little rough, for sure, but probably most were grateful for that. :)

I like the texture on the seine, too. Those beds do not look comfortable at all, but at least hey had food, shelter and heat. Loving this series. Thanks for linking up!

Imagine sleeping there on those 'beds'--I use the term loosely. I would really love to see all this in real life.

Things are so much better now for our service men.

Very rustic living conditions compared to what we have today. Those barracks looked mighty uncomfortable. I love seeing what they used in those days. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful photos. :-))
No doubt, rough living conditions but at least a protected area for sleeping and keeping their provisions.

Thanks for the visit and comment on my RT post.

Not picture overload, but a lovely interesting series!
My bed has more comfort (but in Germany earliers servants slept in the barn in the straw)

somehow this sent me back in time. :) Felt like long lost memories.
I would really not like to sleep in those beds!=) Seems like a nice place to visit!

I enjoyed this series..reminded me of my fathers old woodwork shed. Great shots! Hard to pick a favourite..but probably the barrels and the one under it.

They were probably used to hardship - and hard beds!

I just love this place! Such incredible history still in tact, though somewhat worse for wear. :-) I would love to visit there some time. The reconstructed log buildings are so amazing!

What a wonderful, historical adventure. Love the Seine [new word for me today!]

Very interesting place. I enjoy looking at stuff like this. Can't say I'd like sleeping in a bed like that though.
More interesting photos of the Revolutionary War replicas in this fort! It is a nice look back at a long ago era.

A true sense of the period. Our forefathers cleared the land and farmed the land to have sustenance through the cold winter months.
