BASTION 14 AND THE 1864 WAR

This reconstructed defensive fortifi cation is a relic of the German-Danish War of 1864. Again war broke out over the national affi liation of the Duchy of Schleswig. The Danes modifi ed the medieval Danevirke earthworks to create a defensive position. They built 27 bastions for their canons. Ultimately they were unable to withstand Prussian and Austrian military superiority.
