Entry Description

Castillo de San Marcos—a national monument in St. Augustine, Florida—is the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States. However, it is not merely a monument of stone and mortar but of human determination and endurance that symbolizes the clash between cultures, which ultimately resulted in the uniquely unified nation of modern America. Still resonant with the struggles of an earlier time, these original walls provide tangible evidence of America’s grim but remarkable history.
