Old Red Castle Fort

Posted by Picasa

Here's a contemporary photo of what they call the Red Castle, which overlooks Green Square, and is now a museum that houses many ancient artifacts, the Volkswagon Bug that Gadaffi rode into town on September 1, 1969 while leading the Revolution.

This museum may also contain one of the masts salvaged from the Intrepid, cannons from the USS Philadelphia, and "bones and buttons" of the officers and men of the Intrepid that were excavated by the Libyans in 2005.
