Description

The role of Canada's forts has changed considerably since the early colonial days. In the past, the purpose of forts was to defend the country against invaders. Today, they are a top tourist attraction, drawing thousands of visitors every year. Built in 1804, Ontario's Fort Erie was attacked and occupied by the Americans during the War of 1812 and again by the Fenians in 1866. The Forts stamps are the work of Montreal graphic designer Rolf Harder. By showing a bird's-eye view of the forts, the designer has emphasized their great variety of shapes and structures. For some of the forts, a reconstruction of no longer extant buildings and structures was made, using original plans and drawings of the period. This is indicated by the inclusion of circa dates on these stamps.
