Fort

Famous quotes containing the word fort:

    I never drink—wine.
    —Garrett Fort (1900–1945)

    Across Parker Avenue from the fort is the Site of the Old Gallows, where 83 men “stood on nothin’, a-lookin’ up a rope.” The platform had a trap wide enought to “accommodate” 12 men, but half that number was the highest ever reached. On two occasions six miscreants were executed. There were several groups of five, some quartets and trios.

    She was beautiful when she died—a hundred years ago.
