Fort Frederick

The History

280 years ago, the colonial government in Port Royal conceded to the settlers demands for a new fort for protection from a Spanish incursion. Although its original mission was short-lived, in 1863 Fort Frederick stood at the epicenter of one of the most important events in U.S. history.
