Fort Constitution New Castle New Hampshire
Fort Constitution is a historical site located in New Castle NH. There is a lot of history associated with the old fort. Most notably back in December of 1774, when Paul Revere rode to Portsmouth from Boston to warn the colonists of the British Governments plans to reinforce what was then known as Fort William and Mary.
The colonists ended up raiding the fort and successfully took all or most of the supplies. Many people actually think that this was one of the first battles of the American Revolution. After the war the fort became known as Fort Constitution and today offers free self guided tours.

Why are the keys in there???
This video marks a bunch of milestones. First of all, this is the SECOND ThyssenKrupp Impulse I have filmed, that's right, I am finding more Impulses to film. Secondly, this is the first elevator I have filmed with pads on the walls. This list keeps going on and on. I don't know where to stop.
This elevator happens to be in an expansion part of the museum itself. While this part was built around 2003, the museum itself opened in 1994. The main focus of the museum is the Homefront during WWII, a period in the US itself. Although just mainly artifacts of the time period (and some vehicles as well, including some tanks), they do a fine job presenting the material, giving insight on what it was like then.
