IMAGIN
You are stepping into the past, the year is 1864 and the Civil War is in progress. Ahead of you is a masonry fort under construction. Union Soldiers are involved in the building of the fort. Ask them Questions about the lives they lead stationed at Fort Clinch. Now, follow the path into 1864.
The site on Amelia Island at the entrance to the St. Mary’s River and the Cumberland Sound has been occupied by various military troops since 1736. Construction of a fort, later named Fort Clinch, was begun in 1847. A pentagonal brick fort with both inner and outer walls, Fort Clinch was a safe haven for blockade runners during the Civil War. Briefly occupied by Confederate forces, its recapture by Federal troops in early 1862 gave the Union control of the adjacent Georgia and Florida coasts. The fort was used in 1898 during the Spanish-American War, but was abandoned until the Civil Conservation Corps (CCC) restored it in the 1930s. A Florida State Park, Fort Clinch is interpreted as the base of Union operations in the area throughout the Civil War.
