We also rode over to the civil war era fort, Fort Clinch, which is on the north end of the island. It was a great day for a ride, low 70’s and light clouds. The fort is in great shape and they use it as a reenactment fort one weekend every month so, the buildings are kept in good shape and there are lots of period items around the fort that make you feel like you are back in 1864 during the Civil War. Even the flag over the fort is contemporary to the time period. Some of the brick work was fascinating to see along with the various canons and rooms within the fort. I hope that you enjoy this little walk thru of the fort.
This shot was hard to get, I had to set the timer on the camer and then toss it into the air with just the right spin on the camera to get this shot. (-;
Notice that the brick is two different colors; the lower was built before the civil war and the fort wasn't finished, after the union re-captures the fort they spend 2 years finishing the fort with bricks made in the north so, there are a different color and of a different size!
Great brick work
This area is under the outer corners of the fort.
The supply room (quarter masters area).
The stockaid with original ball and chains!
These are some good size guns and they lined the top walls of the fort.
This little cannon was in great shape.
Notice the flag, the stars are in a circle just as it was in 1864.
