Read again? (still reading)
I'm all about forts, especially those built along the Coastal U.S. in the aftermath of the War of 1812. But any fort is cool with me.
I got this book in May 2007 during a visit to the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine. I started in on it, but didn't get very deep in, so this'll be a "quickie" review.
There's a wealth of information in its 200 pages, and plenty of half-tone black & white photos and illustrations. The book's divided into four large chapters:
1. The Colonial Era
2. The Territorial Era and Seminole Wars
3. The Civil War
4. The Modern Era
I seem to remember that the reading was dry, but in fairness it's been nearly 2 years, so I need to start over.
