Excellent Podcast. Our Foundation is located in Winchester Virginia. We interpret Washington's Fort Loudoun built here, partially on our property, and the history of the Virginia Colonial Frontier. I am particularly interested in The Iroquois Confederacy and their role on the Virginia,Maryland,Pennsylvania,and New York Frontiers. Visit our website at FIWF.org for more information about our activities.We have close ties to Dr Preston,Fort Ligonier, and the Braddock's Road Preservation Society. Our Historian, Norman Baker has just published the Bradock Road Atlas to complement his book on Braddock's Road. We would like to know more about you and your organization.
