The Second Time

The Second Time

Fort Mackinac was the second Fort built in the UP by the British, who did not relinquish it to the Americans  until 1796, fifteen years after American Independence. The British took over the fort a second time at the beginning of the War of1812, defended it through the 1814 Battle of Mackinac Island and once again relinquished control to the US Army in 1815.
