One hundred and forty-three years later, during the turbulent decade of the 1750s, some of the settlers in Augusta County, Virginia, built stockades around their homes for the protection of their families, livestock, and neighbors.
In 2004, the fascinating story of these frontier forts and the settlers that built and depended on them will be added to the exciting historic venues currently presented at Virginia's Explore Park.
Our time period will shift slightly from 1740 to the decade of the 1750s, and we will address the diverse reasons why some families chose to "fort up" rather than to flee when faced with threats of attack.

In the early 1750s, the French had forts at Lake Erie (Fort Presque Isle), on French Creek at Fort le Boeuf, Fort Machault where French Creek joined the Allegheny, and Fort Duquesne until the British regained it in 1758.
The importance of the Ohio was obvious to both countries, since it controlled access to the west.

In fact, much was allowed to remain standing by their failure to offer a new synthesis of English party politics.
In this book Dr Clark provides the key component for such a new synthesis by a detailed exposition of the crisis of the 1750s, which was instrumental in the destruction of the party system and the emergence of new practices in the multi-factional world.
1714-1760, still widely current, is refuted by a demonstration of the survival of the Whig and Tory parties of Queen Anne's reign until the 1750s; the long debate about George III and the constitution is set in a new perspective; and major new insights are offered into the nature of party and party politics.

One theory is that lead flashing was used where the slate roof tiles joined the chimney and that work using molten lead to fix the roof in the 1750s might have caused the fire (Sanford interview).
