I just uploaded a photo walk-through of Fort Clinch on Amelia Island near Jacksonville Florida. Take a look if you are interested in a nearly perfectly preserved Third System fort link

Thanks for posting.

Although I have visited the fort probably 4-5 times, it has been some time since the last visit. It is nice to refresh the memories, and to see the signs of the further restoration made by the Florida Park Service in the past 20 years.

Yes, thanks for posting this. I've never visited Fort Clinch but feel like I have now.

Another restored Third System is Fort Knox, Bucksport Maine. It was begun in the aftermath of a crisis with Great Britain and was intended to protect the mouth of the Penobscot River. It contains several 15" Rodmans. I last visited 12 years ago and, alas, didn't take photos. There are photos at the web site link
