Fort Proctor, one of several forts built along Lake Borgne in Southeastern Louisiana following the War of 1812, was designed and construction commenced in 1856, but was soon halted in 1859, due to a hurricane and events associated with the beginning of the American Civil War. Ursula Emery McClure’s interest in recoding ecological changes within the dynamic coastal environment led her to investigate this site which is under extreme environmental risk.
