30 Ma7 2016: OK- I promised no underwater stuff and no shipwrecks. So, while this isn't exactly maritime, it IS historical, not a shipwreck, and not underwater! And it is worth the time to take a look at this fine video. Sandy Hook is in New Jersey (USA) and close to my home. I have ridden my bicycle through the bike paths of Fort Hancock many times and seen most of the sites shown. Also appropriate for Memorial Day, when, here in the USA, we honor our fallen soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen, and Coast Guardsmen.

You may recall sometime back we did a post on Sandy Hook Lighthouse, and one on the flag pole showing both American and British flags over a gravesite marker.... This video courtesy of Fox News is taken at the same place.

Click below for video:

Hope you enjoyed the story of Fort Hancock.
Until next time,
