The Block House in AmericaCaptain Daniel Cushing, 2nd U.S. Artillery, noted in his diary of 16 February 1813, that the men "placed one twelve pound cannon in the lower blockhouse. Gen. [William Henry] Harrison gave notice this evening that he expected to be attacked every night." Cushing was writing of Fort Meigs, Ohio, which the soldiers had been constructing. During his stint there, Cushing outlasted a siege by the British in early May 1813, which lasted just over a week, and another attempted siege and attack late that July.
