Fort Matanzas National Monument – St. Augustine FL

by | Jun 11, 2018

It was a beautiful Saturday morning in St. Augustine, FL. After several days of heavy rain, Joan and I escaped to have a little fun and tour something new. We’ve visited St. Augustine for years and never toured Fort Matanzas National Monument. There’s no cost and their’s no excuse not to see the very interesting piece of history.

The fort was built by the Spanish in 1742 to guard Matanzas Inlet which could be used as a rear entrance to the city of St. Augustine. Fort Matanzas has an interesting place in history. In 1742, the British under Oglethorpe approached the inlet with twelve ships. Cannon fire drove off the scouting boats, and the warships left without engaging the fort. This brief encounter was the only time Fort Matanzas fired on an enemy.
