Fort Trumbull Magazine; 2009
This picture was taken of the Fort Trumbull Magazine (ammunition storage). The black containers are black powder (gun powder) containers. The table whose corner projects into the picture is the powder ladelling table where the cartridges for the main battery are filled. The magazine will eventually also hold artillery shot, small arms ammunition, bombs, grenades, flares and other munitions. All materials seen here were made by the NETE.
