    ORNAMENTAL FIREPOWER

    In this old fort you can see how the soldiers lived in the early years of the U.S. There are still a lot of old cannons and morters to view.

    A well preserved fort originally built by the British to defend the town from attack. Excellent views can be found inside and outside the fort.

    It is the fort at Saint Augustine. The unique thing about this fort is that it is Spanish. It also has a great view of nearby Matanzas Bay.

    Castillo de San Marcos National Monument.
    Built by the Spanish in the late 1600's, this is the oldest and largest stone fort in the United States.
