HISTORY of FT. HALIFAX
Both Ft. Halifax and Ft. Augusta at the Forks of the Susquehanna (now Sunbury, PA) were part of a line of forts constructed by the Pennsylvania Provincial government during the early part of the French & Indian War (1752–1763). These forts were all strategically sited along what was then the Pennsylvania frontier.

During the French and Indian War (1756-1763), the Province of Pennsylvania played a very significant role in the forming of a Provincial army and the building and garrisoning of Forts in strategic areas. Such was the role Fort Halifax played in this scenario.
