aztalan fort
Aztalan is one of the most important archeological sites in Wisconsin, representing a complex life-style rarely found in the Great Lakes region: a unique blend of native and exotic cultures. Information about the site was first published in 1836, and since then the ruins have attracted considerable public and scientific interest. Archeological excavations continue to uncover valuable information about Aztalan's daily life.
Fort Ligonier was built in September 1758 and was first called Loyalhanna.  British General John Forbes needed a staging area and supply depot for his planned attack on the French at Fort Duquesne and this site was only about 50 miles from Fort Duquesne.
