    Just a little quick look at Fort Mifflin, right next to Philadelphia International Airport. Sad to say, I was expecting more. Was actually closed on the day I visited so no other people around and the gift shop closed. Looks like they use the place for camp outs- kerosene heaters, electric heaters, satellite dish, etc. Lots of bird droppings in the blacksmith shop (I cut that portion). VERY windy when at the riverbank.

        At the mouth of Philadelphia International Airport's main runway sits a 240 year old fort that was active from before the Revolutionary War until the Korean War. She endured the greatest naval barrage in American history (closely rivaled only by the Normany Invasion) while defending Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War, housed prisoners during the Civil War and trained soldiers for World War II and Korea. Now, Fort Mifflin is in danger again... Fort Mifflin is sinking. What began as a challenge to produce a short 5 minute documentary in one week in the hopes of landing a job has turned into a full-fledged production. This is what i accomplished in three days. This is a rough draft of part one. Special thanks to Lenore Eckmann and Mike Maier for their invaluable help. Want to help save help Fort Mifflin?
