Soak Up History at Fort Clinch State Park

There’s nothing better than sneaking in some education for your kids while you’re on vacation and the Union Garrison events at Fort Clinch State Park in Amelia Island is the perfect place. 

Explore the park March 2-3 and step back in time experiencing life at the fort during the Civil War.

Located in the Northeast corner of the state, Fort Clinch is one of the most well-preserved 19th century forts in the entire country.  During the Union Garrison events, you can experience powder artillery demonstrations and even soldier drills. 

I’ve always been fascinated with the blacksmiths – such amazing skill and effort in perfecting their craft. 

With living historians throughout the fort, you can ask questions and get a true feel for their way of life for soldiers and civilians.
