The Maryland people did many things to protect their colony. The governor asked the citizens to build three forts along the western frontier. Fort Frederickwas the largest of these forts. The fort’s walls were made of stone. The settlers built houses inside for soldiers to use. General Braddock, along with George Washington, trained soldiers at Fort Cumberland.
