The Invader of Fort Duckburg is a Scrooge McDuck comic by Don Rosa. It is the tenth of the original 12 chapters in the series The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. The story takes place in 1902.

Plot[edit]

The first three Junior Woodchucks are expelled from their former headquarters, the ruins of Fort Duckburg recently bought by Scrooge. In order to reclaim the Fort, they appeal to "higher authority" by wire, which turns out as an all-ears U. S. President Theodore Roosevelt (Attorney General William Henry Moody: "They say a billionaire from Scotland has seized a military installation on the coast!" - Roosevelt: "Great jumping Jehoshaphat! The three dangers that I campaign strongest against - big business, foreign interference, and military threats to our shores - all rolled into one! Egad!"), who decides to mobilize the entire US Army and Navy against Fort Duckburg. After an enduring battle fought pretty much against Scrooge alone, eventually the President's troops fold against the infamous temper of Scrooge's sister Hortense.
