Erik Nitsche: Canadian Forts
Artist: Erik Nitsche
The vast country of Canada has a rich and colorful history. Like the American West, the frontier of Canada had its share of dangers for those who explored its outermost regions. Consequently, the construction of forts in many areas of Canada became a necessity. Some forts were built to provide protection from hostile Indians. Others were erected to control some strategic waterway or land route ... and still other forts defended trading posts or were used as bases for detachments of Canada's mounted police. Today, many of Canada's forts still stand or have been reconstructed ... a living heritage where visitors are able to glimpse into the past and experience what life in eighteenth and nineteenth century Canada was like.
