Fort Loudoun, Pennsylvania, was one of the forts built to support the 1758 Forbes Expedition against Fort Duquesne. The excavations were designed to learn more about the specifics of this fort’s chronology and structural features in conjunction with earlier research on other Forbes forts. Sufficient information concerning the fort’s structure was assembled to enable reconstruction of the palisade and bastions in 1993, though no interior buildings were rebuilt due to the lack of above-ground details. Fort Loudoun is the only reconstructed example of a Pennsylvania provincial fort built by a Quaker government to defend frontier settlements.
