Whatever Happened to Fort Bull?

Fort Bull was one of three forts constructed during the French and Indian War to protect the Oneida Carry, a portage route in central New York State. The Oneida Carry lay between the Mohawk River and Wood Creek, as one of the important trade routes between Albany and Oneida Lake. This fort was destroyed in an Indian raid, and some say Mel Gibson borrowed its history for his Fort Wilderness take in “The Patriot.”
