A few months ago, while researching items held by the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale, I unexpectedly came across the enclosed diagram of Fort Micanopy (1837). It is certainly one of the most detailed images I have ever seen and so I wanted to share this with list members. The diagram reveals new information, such as the numerous exterior "kitchens" located outside of the palisaded structure.
