View of Fort William and Mary at New Castle in New Hampshire in the United States of America. The fort is situated at the mouth of the Piscataqua River estuary and was first built in 1632 and was one of a number of fortifications built to guard the harbour at Portsmouth. It was named after the 17th century King William and Queen Mary of England. The fort was the site of fighting during the American Wars of Revolution. In 1775 the fort was dismantled by the British and the remains were used to build Fort Constitution.
