In his new book, Fort Halifax: Winslow’s Historic Outpost, Professor of History Daniel J. Tortora builds upon Gen. Carleton E. Fisher’s pioneering work to create a more detailed picture than previous writings. The book is complete with black and white maps, plans, portraits and images from the 250-year history. In addition, Tortora thoroughly traces parties who worked to preserve the blockhouse, including antiquarian Rev. Timothy Paine, students of Colby College, historian William Goold, the Maine Historical Society, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the state of Maine.
