Forts of Florida   

Forts have been symbols of national power and military influence for millennia, and Florida is home to many of these imposing structures. Remains of monolithic edifices constructed from coquina and brick defend every corner of Florida and the state’s interior is filled with dozens of sites of early American and Seminole war forts. This lecture will explore the wide range of the state’s fortifications from the failed French forts near Jacksonville to the Spanish forts of north Florida to the massive brick structures of the Civil War and everything in between.

Floridian members, explore Fort De Soto Park later in the evening with Cathy Salustri. Evening includes a picnic and optional bike ride.
