Summary
The Spaniards began to build the Castillo de San Marcos in 1672 to defend St. Augustine, Florida. Students will also read about Fort Mose, the first free black settlement in North America, built 2 miles north of the Castillo. Children will learn about the Castillos dramatic history, about how its occupation as a Spanish, an English, and an American military fort came through military or political agreements. Although the Castillo was attacked, it was never taken by force.
