Excerpt: The Fort at Prospect Bluff documentary

The Fort at Prospect Bluff (or “Negro Fort”) was built by the British in 1814 and destroyed by U.S. forces in 1816. It was the scene of the deadliest cannon shot in American history, a 9-pound cannonball that blew up the gunpowder magazine and killed 270 of the 320 men, women and children within its walls.

Two Egg TV is producing a full-length documentary on the history of the fort. Here is a first preview:
