Fort Miles played an important part in the First State's coastal defenses against the hostile German army during World War ll. 

Join Delaware Tonight, as we take a tour of the gun batteries and 16 inch guns, and see what it would have been like to protect the waterways leading to Philadelphia and Wilmington.  

And, we'll introduce you to two young men who've made it their mission to keep the memories of this forgotten fortress alive.
