Built atop Gage Hill by the British in 1778 to protect the city from invasion, Fort George was the site of fierce fighting during the American Revolution between Patriot-aligned Spanish forces and British forces. During the Siege of Pensacola, it was surrendered to the Spanish and eventually renamed Fort San Miguel. While the original fort no longer stands, a recreation of the fort was completed in 1976, and archeological digs have been conducted on the site to learn more about the fighting there.
