Also interesting to me: The Fort was completely modern for its time, and sounds like a true force to reckon with. Large caliber weapons were installed behind a 750-foot-long and 35-foot thick concrete and earth embankment that formed a sloped wall, and had the ability to shoot seven to eight miles. Two steel control towers were later added to improve aim, and observers stationed in the tower controlled fire. Landscaping around the Fort helped to camouflage Mott from attack.
If you decide to check it out, just take a tip from Todd Bauman and plan to arrive BEFORE they lock the gates!
