It is a wonderful thing that people, agencies, governments, or whoever thoughtfully preserve areas of national interest such as Fort Necessity. The fort itself isn't what we would call impressive by 21st century standards. It is really just a a simple wooden palisade wall around a small cabin. The thing about Fort Necessity is that is preserves the place where history happened and if you take the time to watch the introductory movie in the nice, clean, attractive Information Center you are reminded (or perhaps informed) of that history. George Washington is of course a national hero. But even heroes have their bad days and the days leading up to the ultimate surrender of the fort were some of George Washingtons bad days. It only takes an hour or two to see the basics and it is time well spent.
