Fort Halifax – 1756

Fort Halifax was one of four forts built along the Susquehanna River in North Central Pennsylvania to provide safe shelter for pack trains passing from Fort Hunter (now in Harrisburg) to Fort Augusta (now in Sunbury.) during the French and Indian War. The fort was erected by Col. William Clapham, with the order of Governor Morris, and guarded by a garrison of the Third Battalion of the Pennsylvania Provincial Regiment. It was abandoned when the war was over.
