Mensagem:  Well, entrance posts are probably one of two things: wooden posts or poles sticking out of the ground at the entrance or guard houses (guard posts). Cut them down means to chop them with an ax or hatchet. Fort is a fortaleza.

So what you have is "Chop down the wooden things (poles or small kiosks/houses) at the entrance to the fort."

Are you reading a book about the frontier days?
