Established in 1758, Fort Ligonier played an important role in the Forbes Campaign (1758) of the French and Indian War (1754-1763). While the role of the fort in the war is well-documented, little is known about the daily lives of the residents of this relatively small structure. Examining the spatial distribution of artifacts recovered from excavations that have taken place over the past 50 years and through comparisons to other contemporary forts, it is possible to discern patterns of activities that took place within the walls of this significant fort.
