One of the best resources for researching the early frontier forts of Pennsylvania, Volume 1 of this set covers the Indian forts of the Blue Mountains, the frontier forts within the North and West branches of the Susquehanna River, the frontier forts in the Cumberland and Juniata Valleys, and the frontier forts within the Wyoming Valley region. Volume 2 of this set covers the Frontier Forts of Western Pennsylvania including the Counties of Fayette, Washington, Greene, Indiana, Beaver, Venango, Erie, Westmoreland, Allegheny, Armstrong, and Crawford. This volume also describes local houses and buildings that were used as protection from the Indians as far back as the early 1700s. There are many detailed color maps and color illustrations of how some of these forts looked when in use. The maps show incredible detail, right down to nearby houses and outbuildings. The maps would be a wonderful resource for treasure hunters or those with a metal detector as some of these forts were never found, and still remain hidden in the Pennsylvania woods, waiting to be rediscovered. A must have for the PA military historian.
