Unique Fence Surrounding The Magazine at Colonial Williamsburg Virginia





This unique fence surrounds the Magazine at Colonial Williamsburg; where the guns and ammunition were stored in colonial times.  Royal Governor Dunsmore sent in marines to steal the powder to disarm the people as the strain between colonist and crown became great.

Hi. At first I want to compliment you on your fine music. Very interesting, especially the first two pieces. Your today's photo looks like very menacing. Great angle you've choosed.

Looks like a good way to keep people out and to keep them in, lol. I bet it was a lot of work assembling. :)

Nothing like the threat of impalement right outside the threat of explosion for a fun time, eh?
