    1. James, sorry for the belated reply. If you are looking for period photographs of the fortifications, my searches thus far have drawn blanks. But surely with as many photos which exist of wartime Harpers Ferry, there are at least a few out there.

    2. James,

      The library at HF has many photographs and might have something for Ft. Duncan. You may schedule a visit there usually only on a Tues or Thurs by making an appointment. It would also help if you told the librarian for what you are looking.

      If you wish I can give you contact info.
