Fort Frederica on St. Simons Island was a flourishing town and fort in the 1700s. Here the British defeated the Spanish in two battles and British rule in Georgia was assured.

It marked, in history, the last stand of the Spanish in present-day Georgia. Today Fort Frederica holds little more than ruins on St. Simons Island along the Georgia coast. But you can get a feel for 18th century life there during a living history presentation at Fort Frederica National Monument on November 19.
You can learn about sea turtles and 18th century battles between the British and Spanish over the "debatable land" with a visit to Fort Frederica National Monument in Georgia.
