|My Father at Fort Boykin|
|The Fort's Cistern|
We chose to visit this historic site due to the fact that it was active when the first Askew colonists came to the area. While standing at Fort Boykin … it is easy to imagine the passenger and supply ships that passed by on their way to these Virginia colonist settlements. Fort Boykin was absolutely essential to their survival and existence.
