Friday, May 24, 2019—It's not everyday that Atoms get to dress in 17th century clothing, practice on a cannon drill team and experience fort life. But it's business as usual when you visit Fort Stanwix National Monument and Oriskany Battlefield Historic Site. Right in our backyard, Fort Stanwix and Oriskany Battlefields are two historic locations filled with rich American history. Atoms learned about the 21 day siege at Fort Stanwix, as well as, how it received the title "the fort that never surrendered." Following this adventure, students visited the site of the Revolutionary War's Battle of Oriskany.
