Halifax Citadel

You can’t really miss the citadel when you visit Halifax. It’s atop a large hill in what seemed like the center of town. To be honest, I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to visit it, not least because I didn’t know for sure if it would be worth the hike up the aforementioned hill.

However, the walk up wasn’t too bad, and I think it was definitely worth it. I had the good fortune to visit with Dr. Erica Morin, professor of American History, who also happened to grow up near some forts in upstate New York, so it was like having my own private tour guide.
