“Ruins of Oglethorpe’s Barracks at Frederica. This is from a sketch made by W. W. Hazzard, Esq., in 1851. Mr. Hazzard writes: ‘These ruins stand on the left bank or bluff of the south branch of the Alatamaha River, on the west side of St. Simon’s Island, where the steamers pass from Savannah to Florida.’ This fort was a scene of hostilities during the war of the Revolution, and also that of 1812; and is one of the most interesting military relics of our country. Mr. Hazzard states that, in his field in the rear of it, his men always turn up ‘bomb-shells and hollow shot whenever they plow there.’ The whole remains are upon his plantation at West Point."—Lossing, 1851
