The Halifax Citadel


THE HALIFAX CITADEL  National Historic Park  Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

This is an actual multi-page informational 11 page booklet with maps, pictures, and information.

Halifax was founded in 1749 to provide a base for the British Navy and Army and a springboard for attack on the French at Louisbourg and Quebec, because the final contest between France and England for possession of the North American continent was clearly approaching. Citadel Hill was always the innermost keep and chief land defence of the Halifax Fortress. Four forts were built, at different periods, on its summit.
