If you live in Georgia, chances are you have been to Amelia or Cumberland Island. They are both lovely places to visit. Amelia Island’s history goes back to the 1500’s and has flown a total of eight flags. On the island stands Fort Clinch, a civil war fort. My husband visited recently with a friend, Brent Nitschke. who is also a photographer, Brent really captured the beauty of the old fort.
The little windows are called gun embrasures. This is where the men fought, with guns booming inside the room. The noise alone must have been terrifying when they were all down there in action.
