(001155) Linen Postcard. The Southwest Bastion at Fort Loudoun, built by G. Washington as it stands today, Winchester, Va. Boston, MA: Tichnor Bros., Inc.. Excellent. Unused. 79335. Printed on back: Pub. by Shenandoah News Agency, Winchester, Va. When Col. George Washington built Fort Loudon (1756-57) to protect the people of Winchester against the French and Indians, it was necessary, in the event of a siege, to have a water supply within the one-half acre fortification. A 103-foot well was sunk, mostly through solid limestone. The work was tedious, since only had drills and black powder were in use. For years, the water was drawn by windlass, cable and wooden bucket. The garrison comprised 450 men, and the fort cost $30,000. The necessary iron work was done by blacksmiths brought from Mt. Vernon... (Winchester, Virginia)
