Learning Links

Learning Links

These resources are links that are not associated with Fort Roberdeau. They are external links. We are often asked questions about details concerning the period. We are a primarily volunteer based site. We feel that part of our mission is helping educate about the time period. We receive a lot of complex questions. Although some of us know some of the answers some of the time, we are not all as well versed as many others throughout the world who have sunk a lot of their time into researching the 18th century in detail.

 

Some of these links have information about construction of items, while others are links to more information about 18th century subjects. We try to keep these links updated and with the newest research available concerning them.
