									         Fort Schuyler
  The fort that never surrendered

Part 3- Life at the Fort as an Officer
Life is much better if you are an officer.  The soldiers or the camp followers 
 who are the wives and families of the soldiers do the fatigue work for you 
such as laundry, cleaning, preparing meals, gathering wood, drawing water 
                       and emptying your chamber pot.
This was Colonel Peter Gansevoort’s living quarters. Notice how much more room and
        nicer furniture and dishes. There is fresh fruit next to the chess board.
The Colonel’s dining room was more spacious with comfortable chairs. Second in
  command Marinus Willet would have eaten his meal here with all the officers.
 Marinus Willet, second in command to Colonel Gansevoort, received this sword as a
remembrance for his leadership during St. Leger’s march through the Mohawk Valley.
