St. Simons Island, Georgia

Fort Frederica, St. Simons Island, Georgia was built in 1736 by the British under the direction of Oglethorpe.  It became the military headquarters for the defense of Britain's American Colonies against Spanish Florida.  It was the most expensive British fortification in our country and is now Fort Frederica National Monument.
