Fort Watauga at Sycamore Shoals

Fort Watauga at Sycamore Shoals, Elizabethton, TN Posted by Picasa

The early frontier forts and stations were a combination of log cabins, stockades, and palisades. Portholes were cut in order to see through and fire muskets at the invading enemy. Supplies, weapons, and ammunition were stocked inside the fort in order for the occupants to endure a seige.
