The song "Yankee Doodle" was written at Fort Crailo in 1758 by Dr. Richard Shuckurg, a British Army surgeon. It is often sung patriotically in the United States today and is the state anthem of Connecticut.
Fort Crailo was built about 1704 by Hendrick Van Rensselaer on the banks of the Hudson River in what is now Rensselaer, NY. It was never really a fort but rather a fortified home. CHECK PHOTO ALBUMS BELOW - OVER 60 IMAGES OLD & NEW!
