Fort Delaware

Fort Delaware State Park in Delaware City is hosting an annual prisoner of war living history events this weekend.


“History Matters” digs into the Delaware Historical Society’s archives each month to explore connections between key people, places, and events in history and present-day news.

In this month's History Matters, Delaware Public Media and the Delaware Historical Society offer another view of the former Civil War prison as part of the 150th anniversary of the War Between the States: one from those who were actually there.
