Fot Macomb Ruin


Fort Macomb is an abandoned military site on the eastern outskirts of New Orleans, Louisiana.  It's located on the Chef Menteur Pass, a natural waterway which connects Lake Pontchartrain with Lake Borgne.  Seen here in this drone video by Bumble Bee Productions, the fort was originally constructed in 1822.  Shaped like a pie wedge, the brick fortification was taken over by Confederate forces during the US Civil War but did not see any action during the conflict; it caught suffered a fire after the war and was soon abandoned by the US Army.
