Historical Context: Fort New Casco was erected in 1700 after the destruction of Fort Loyal. Designed by Colonel Wolfgang Romer, it was constructed in what is now Falmouth by the mouth of the Presumscot River. In June of 1703 a council between the Abenaki Indians and governor Joseph Dudley agreed to a peace. However, the fort was attacked in August of 1703 by a group of Abenaki assembled under the Canadian governor. The fort held but was redesigned by engineer John Redknap in 1705. The design enclosed the original structure. Fort New Casco was never again attacked and was dismantled in 1716.
