Fort Niagara: The Struggle for a Continent

Episode 1 of 1

The story of Fort Niagara is the story of a struggle for a continent. For over 150 years, four nations struggled to control this strategic point at the mouth of the Niagara River, and thus control the critical water artery it protected. But the fort is not only unique for its history, it is unique for its longevity. Visitors to the site today can still explore one of North America's largest collections of original 18th century military architecture -- tangible reminders of the fort's important past. Rare archival footage, expert commentaries and spectacular videography of the fort itself come together in brilliant High-Definition to create a program that is a must for anyone interested in the story of North America.
