R.I.P. Fort Wilderness

This week begins the demolition of Fort Wilderness. It may not seem like that big of a deal to some, but I have many a great memories of the Fort. Soon all of Tom Sawyer Island will be a distat memory, and since most people probably won’t be making the trip to Hannibal Missouri (Mark Twain’s boyhood home) I fear that future generations will never get to experience what it is like to live and play amongst the stories of Mr. Twain. It is a sad sad day indeed.
