Our Visit to Fort Loudoun

A while back I took the kids over to Fort Loudoun in Vonore, TN. It was pretty neat as the kids got to see how a British fort would have operated from 1756-1760. The history behind this whole East TN area is very interesting and us being newcomers to the area, we are still learning.
