Fort Gosselin was established after the British capture of Castine in September 1814. This fort was built as one of a series of smaller fortifications surrounding the main British fort on the peninsula, Fort George. The other British fortifications included Fort Griffith, Fort Sherbrooke (2), Fort Furieuse, the captured Fort Madison (1) and a number of gun batteries. The fort was dismantled when the British left in April 1815.
