This is a micro cache at the Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park that is well worth the visit.
Even though I've heard a lot about this Fort, I'd never actually been there until recently. I enjoyed exploring it so much that I thought I'd introduce a few others to the spot as well. Add a touch of reality to your Revolutionary War history lesson with a visit to the Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park, site of the 1781 massacre led by the traitorous Benedict Arnold. There's a great website with detailed information about the battles waged here (visit link)
It's also a fun place for kids to explore. They'll have fun looking at the ditch ("dry moat") and the tunnel-like passageway ("sally port") as well as the many other small detours. And the view of New London is remarkable.
Make sure to stop and look at the buildings along the way...especially the one made of brick(N 41 21.205/W 072 04.864). Did you know that these existed? I didn't!
The micro contains only a log book - PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PENCIL OR PEN!
This is a great one to find in tandem with Cadea's "Ernie's Treasure" cache!
Note: In icy weather, some of the stones are quite slippery so please be careful.
