Fort William serves as one of the over 40 forts that were built by the British on the coast of Gold Coast present-day Ghana somewhere around 1753. The fort was nicknamed the Buckingham Palace due to the architectural beauty and the expensiveness of the fort, but its beauty does not match the pain and atrocities that it inflicted on the numerous Enslaved Africans that passed through it. It is believed it over 300,000 enslaved Africans were kept in this fort awaiting shipment due to its proximity to Assin Manso slave market making it one of the most valued assets by the British during the transatlantic slave trade. Fort Willaim stands to be the only fort in Ghana then Gols Coast that had an auction room for enslaved Africans, it is believed that most of the enslaved Africans from this fort were sent to Jamaica and Barbados. Currently, the fort is not popular as compared to Cape Coast Castle and Elmina Castle due to the fact that, after the transatlantic slave trade was abolished by the British somewhere 1833, the fort was not used until 1844 where 8 Fante chiefs signed a bond which was popularly called the bond of 1844 with the then governor of Gold Coast called Captain George Mclean for the colonization of Ghana. That bond paved way for colonization from 1844 to 6th March 1957 where the independence of Ghana was declared. Fort William became a part of the administrative structures used by the British during the colonization period and later was turned into a prison from 1957 to 2005. People were not allowed to visit the fort because it was a prison yard and thus making it not known by many as one of the major forts where enslaved Africans were kept. Today there has been a conscious effort by the Ministry of Tourism in Ghana to keep this historic monument and its sad history but little has been achieved. This article sort to highlight this historic monument for it not to be forgotten.
