What people are saying:

The Royal Military College of Canada was established in 1876 and has a history of more than 100 years. When the school officially started on June 1 of that year, there were only 18 students in the first batch. Two years later, Queen Victoria agreed to use the word "Royal" in front of the college's name. The school has an area of 41 hectares, and modern academic, sports, and residential facilities are mixed with ancient and historic buildings. The graduates of the Royal Canadian Military Academy will be trained and trained to become commanders in the Canadian National Army. Fort Henry is located on a small hill not far from the Royal Military Academy. Although it is not high, it is the commanding height of this area. In 1673, the French established a fort (Fort Frontenac) here, which was subsequently burned down by the British army in the Seven Years' War between Britain and France, and the British army built another military fortress. In the American-Canada (British) War of 1812, Kingston It is the headquarters of the British "Great Lakes Fleet". After the war, in order to prevent a sneak attack by the US army, the British army built a series of castles and forts along the St. Lawrence River in this area. Fort Henry is one of the most prestigious fortresses because of its location guarding the throat of the St. Lawrence River entering the Great Lakes. Opened to the public in 1938, it has now become a famous tourist attraction in Kingston. The fortress has a queue performance every hour, Garrison Parade, a military fortress defense artillery show, and a rifle shooting show. But the day we came did not seem to be open, the door was closed and deserted. But here is condescending, overlooking the entire city, the scenery is still good.
