Category:Fort Sekondi

In Sekondi existed since the 1680s two forts: a British fort and a Dutch fort, the later was called "Fort Orange". The British fort was destroyed during the American Independance War (1779-1784) by the French and was not again rebuilded. Fort Orange was exchanged for Fort Vredenstein in Kommendah in 1785 and was since then British until to the great fort exchange from 1868 as the fort came again in Dutch possession. From 1872 on it was British again.
