Citadel, Halifax

Monday, 18th April 2005 by

Regular contributor “caknuck” submitted the The Citadel in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This fort was built in the mid-19th Century to protect the British harbour city of Halifax from an American invasion. While it never faced a direct attack, the fort helped to deflect much of the blast of the devastating Halifax Explosion of 1917, saving thousands of lives of the people who lived in its shadow.
