    Is there a list of the names of the soldiers who died at Fort Montgomery on 6 Oct 1777?

      Hi Agnes,

      If a complete list does exist online, I’ve never found it. You may do well to contact the park directly and see if they can recommend a local history resource. Best of luck on this!

    My husband’s ancestor, Col. William Allison, fought and was captured by the British at Ft. Montgomery. Col. Allison’s 18 year old son, Micah, was killed Oct 6, 1777 at Ft. Montgomery.

    The first time we visited Ft. Montgomery there was just the Historical Site sign before the bridge. We walked out into the woods, which were fairly thick at the time, and stumbled across an area that had been slightly dug out and where we could see a small part of what had been a stone wall.

    We were thrilled when visiting the site, some years later, to see that the area had been cleared and was now a park with plaques along a walking path to explain the site.
