The Invader of Fort Duckburg is a comic story written and drawn by Don Rosa. It features Scrooge McDuck, Matilda McDuck, Hortense McDuck, several Beagle Boys (including Blackheart Beagle), Theodore Roosevelt, three Junior Woodchuck (including Fulton Gearloose), Grandma Duck, Humperdink Duck, Quackmore Duck, Eider Duck and Daphne Duck. Theodore Roosevelt also utters "great jumping Jehoshaphat!".
1902. Scrooge finally settles in Duckburg, where his sister Hortense meets the hot-tempered farmer Quackmore Duck (later to become Donald's father). But he also locks horns with the Beagle Boys as well as Theodore Roosevelt, now president of the United States of America, whom the Junior Woodchucks call in as reinforcments after Scrooge threatens to burn down Fort Duckburg to make room for a money bin.
- Teddy's Campaign (1994) is a deleted scene from this chapter, released in the form of storyboards.
- Scrooge McDuck's acquisition, and subsequent discarding, of a Rolls-Regal Horseless Shay are shown, after being related by Scrooge in Carl Barks's Chugwagon Derby (1961).
- Scrooge relates an anecdote about his time in the Transvaal previously featured as a flashback in Carl Barks's The Loony Lunar Gold Rush (1963).
- This story depicts the Duck clan as inhabiting a different farm than the perennial Grandma Duck's Farm of the present-day comics, on the outskirts of Duckburg; the 1902 farm is instead located quite near to Killmotor Hill. No Trespassing (1952) had Grandma remarking that she had been using the road from her present-day Farm to the city “for fifty years”, consistent with Grandma moving to a more remote homestead in 1902 a short time after the events of The Invader of Fort Duckburg.
