Identify a drawing of a fort
March 19, 2014 4:30 PM   Subscribe

My late father was interested in military history and history in general. He would sometimes draw the layout of forts, and I'm wondering if anyone can identify this one. Here is a photo, as well as a close up of the key at the bottom right.

Also, here is a higher resolution view from my DSLR although the lens creates a shadow.

The types of artillery seems to point to the American Civil War era.
