[AmRevolution] Unknown Fort

I am looking for information about an old photograph of a stone fort. A Vauban quadrangular stone fort, it has for sides with an arrowhead bastion at each corner and is located near water possible where a tide exists. One of the bastions points toward the waters edge. This bastion has a structure that looks like a stone bullet/look out tower/ flag post on its outer point. The other three bastions have a smaller bullet type stone on their top edges. It has a walkway or allure behind the parapet and appears to be wide. There is an area for a ditch with a counterscarp of stones. It also has a small triangular stucture or tenaille outside the fort which is attached to the fort by a small stone bridge spanning the ditch. The curtains and bastions do not appear to have embasures in them. The curtain is about four times the height of the entry way door. The forts appearance looks similar to the Fort Ashby design. I have a scan of the picture for email.
It is a photograph that has been hand colored with watercolors. Beautiful picture. Thanks for the help anyone can give.
