Fort Mifflin

1 Fort Mifflin Road, Philadelphia, PA 19153

 

Fort Mifflin is sometimes visible when airline passengers arrive in Philadelphia as it is located adjacent to the Philadelphia airport. The Fort is a historic reminder that Philadelphia was a key port city that needed to be defended by land as well as by the Delaware River. It stands as a silent testimony of the resolve of the American people in the Revolutionary War to stand fast in the liberty that had been bequeathed to them by Penn’s Charter. As Galatians 5:1 says, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (NIV).
