    Love the Look of That Masonry

There is, of course, a practical reason for this flair-out at the bottom of the demibastion front curtain. Because the fort was built on swampy land, a huge cyprus-log grillage was laid out as a subterranian footing for the flaired masonry foundation. The flair gives the fort a substantial increase in foundation sqare-footage over that cross-sectional area described by the scarp and casemates alone. This reduces the pounds per square foot pressure on the log grillage and other foundation elements which helps reduce `settling` to a minimum.
