Collections are particularly strong in the areas of Native American, pre-Columbian, California Plein Air paintings, African, and Oceanic.

Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine (FL):     From 1672 to 1695 the Castillo de San Marcos served primarily as an outpost of the Spanish Empire, guarding St. Augustine, the first permanent european settlement in the continental United States.  It also protected the sea route for treasure ships returning to Spain with American "booty".

Fort Frederick State Park (MD):     The site of Maryland's frontier defense during the French and Indian War (1754-1763), the Fort's stone walls and two barracks have been restored to their 1758 appearance. Activities are held throughout the year for reenactors and re-creators.

Fort Ligonier (PA):     A full-scale, on-site reconstruction of the 1758-1766 original, situated on a commanding hilltop in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania. Enriching living history activities and pageantry such as reenactments, battles, encampments, folk crafts, and archeological digs enhance your educational experience with a vividness no textbook can match.

Fort Loudoun (TN):     This British fort was built during the winter of 1756-57 to protect the trans-Appalachian region during the French and Indian War (the 7 year war). Home for the last few years of the Great North American Rendezvous (GNAR), an autumn fur trade encampment re-creation. The site is currently being restored by " all volunteer" involvement. They could use your help, and any contributions, if you can spare a few bucks to keep an important part of our history alive.

Fort Necessity National Battlefield (PA):     Reconstructed Fort Necessity, the historic Mount Washington Tavern, a picnic area, and over 3 miles of hiking trails through beautiful Pennsylvania countryside.

Fort Niagara, Old (NY):     300 years of history .... just minutes from the famous waterfalls. The site of historic battles and sieges, trading and conquest, Old Fort Niagara is an exciting place where the past lives on! Preserved as they stood in the 1700's when France and Britain controlled Niagara, the Fort's structures include the oldest building in the Great Lakes.

Fort Pitt Museum (PA):     Located in a re-created 18th century bastion of the famous British fort on the forks of the Ohio River at Point State Partk in downtown Pittsburgh. Fort Pitt was a critical stronghold in the struggle for empire between France and Britain in Western Pennsylvania and the old Northwest Territory.

Fort Stanwix (NY):     Built in 1758 to guard a strategic portage along a major transportation route, Fort Stanwix stands as an inspiration to the people of the world. Fort Stanwix, where various Native American nations were cajoled into accepting soon-to-be-broken peace treaties, guarded the centuries old Oneida Carrying Place. This strategic Iroquois portage bridged the waterways between the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes.

Fort Ticonderoga (NY):     Originally named Fort Carillon by its French builders.
