The Fort is located in Fort Wayne, Indiana and was named after General Anthony Wayne. The term "blacksmith" comes from the activity of "forging" iron or the "black" metal - so named due to the color of the metal after being heated (a key part of the blacksmithing process). The term "forging" means to shape metal by heating and hammering. "Smith" is from the Proto-German "smithaz" meaning "skilled worker." Wikipedia
