fort.stanwix.nps Did you know that several U.S. #Presidents traveled to or near the Oneida Carry at one point or another? This list includes, but is not limited to: ‣‣ George #Washington came to the site in 1783 to see the remains and look for land to purchase. ‣‣ James Madison and James Monroe came to the location in 1784 to witness and participate in the signing of the Treaty of 1784. ‣‣ In 1853, at the age of 17, future president Grover Cleveland spent time at his mother's home in Holland Patent, NY; only 10 miles away from the remains of the fort. He was at a crossroads in his life and was trying to plan his future career. ‣‣ Sadly, in spring of 1865, President Abraham #Lincoln's body was carried over the Oneida Carry as his funeral train rolled through on its way to Springfield, Illinois. ‣‣ Theodore #Roosevelt traveled through the area several times during the late 1800s and early 1900s, at one point staying at the Stanwix Hall Hotel, built on grounds of the old fort. He even came through Rome, NY in 1901, on his way to Buffalo (shortly after President William McKinley was mortally wounded at the World Fair), not knowing that he would be sworn in as President of the United States shortly thereafter. ‣‣ John F. #Kennedy stood on the steps of the Oneida County Courthouse building (a block away from the remains of the fort) while on his 1960 presidential campaign. #PresidentsDay #DidYouKnow #FortStanwix #Parks101 #TR #JFK #history #RomeNY 📷 credit: @rhsfriendsofthefort @NationalParkGeek

fort.stanwix.nps “Feb 5, 1759 Parole: KELSEITH – Each company to fill with Sand The barrels which they Receive with their Provision & the Serjeant who receives the provision, to be Responsible that he Delivers the Same Number of barrels that He Receives, (the Day after the Receipt of the Provisions) to Serjeant Rose.” -From the Orderly Book of the 78th Regiment of Foot At one point during their first winter, the Highland Regiment stationed at the fort was ordered to finish the works and make it defensible. Being the middle of winter, this was done creatively by using items they already had nearby instead of heading to the forest to find wood.  #History #FortStanwix #OTD #OnThisDay #FrenchandIndianWar #FrenchandIndianWarFiles #TDiH #History
