From early frontier days to World War II and beyond, wherever there has been conflict there have been places of  defense.  The number of restored forts is a testament to the conflict experienced in our history.  They range from remnants of temporary earthworks to stone fortresses and concrete bunkers.  As always, if you know of a fortification not list here, tell us.
