The historic landmark of Fort Mifflin is the oldest fortification continually used in the US. Over 300 Americans lost their lives here in 1777, when British forces relentlessly attacked the fort from their ships – at a rate of over 1,000 cannon rounds an hour!
The battle escalated into the greatest bombardment of the American Revolution – one which many say changed the course of American history.
Today, Fort Mifflin has been preserved as a National Historic Landmark. The unique fort and its surrounding environment is protected and used to educate and enlighten tourists, families and students about the importance of the site.
Here at the Online Book Company, we have developed a way for individuals to honour patriots and veterans in an everlasting format. The online book allows you to mark memories of loved ones by creating free memorial pages, expressing feelings in words, pictures and video clips – as well as being able to share pages with friends and family.
A memorial walkway has been built at Fort Mifflin with hand-made bricks which can be purchased through the online book. Each brick allows you to make your own mark in history and ranges in size and prices from $75 – $200.
