Stand on the place where the first Scottish colonists arrived in 1629. Imagine their difficult lives and the ensuing struggles as European powers battled over control of North America. All that reminds us of Charles Fort today is a plaque on the grounds of Fort Anne National Historic Site in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.
