Fort Frederica - May 21, 2010
history bookFort Frederica National Monument on St. Simons Island, Georgia, preserves the archaeological remnants of a fort and town built by James Oglethorpe between 1736 and 1748 to protect the southern boundary of the British colony of Georgia from Spanish raids. About 630 British troops were stationed at the fort. A town of up to about 500 residents existed outside the fort. One-third of Frederica Town's original colonists left within the first five years of settlement. Many returned to England. The town was named Frederica, after Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of King George II.

In 1742, the British (Fort Frederica's troops) defeated the Spanish at the battles of Gully hole Creek and Bloody Marsh, ensuring Georgia's future as a British colony. The Spanish retreated to Florida, and later would sign a peace treaty with the British, thus paving the way for the Colony of Georgia to be formed.
A tabby fort guarded the twisting water approach to the town.
