Storming the Guardhouse at Colonial Williamsburg

We visited Colonial Williamsburg this past weekend. The Magazine and Guardhouse there is protected by a wall and a large ring of wooden spikes to prevent anyone from attacking it and capturing the gunpowder and weapons. This was much more important around 1775 or so.

As you can see from my failed attempt to storm the guardhouse, those spikes are very effective.
