For eleven months in 1861, Confederate forces occupied Fort Clinch. During this time, there was no construction on the fort, but life went on. Join Fort Clinch State Park as reenactors and first-person interpreters take you back in time for the day-to-day happenings of a Confederate fort in Florida. Take a walk and learn how horse shoes are made, how water is filtered before drinking and why they left without firing a shot.
