When we went to St. Augustine Florida we visited a fort called Castillo de San Marcos. The fort was built between 1672 and 1695 by the Spanish. Florida became part of the USA in 1821. The fort is now a place to visit and learn about. We got to see a cannon fired! Did you know that the fort is made of coquina. Coquina is a mixture of shells and sand that has hardened. The fort is a really cool place!
