Fort Duffield, KY, Mar 2009

Fort Duffield is a Civil War Union stronghold on the Salt River. This is Kentucky's oldest and best-preserved earthen fortification. The fort was built to protect the army supply base in West Point KY and the city of Louisville from attack via the Louisville-Nashville turnpike and the Ohio river.

In 1895 Louisville hosted the Grand Army of the Republic's convention. Special trains for veterans came to West Point to visit this fortification.
