”Castillo de San Marcos was the principle fortification en the regional defense system which ensured the Spanish presence in Florida for 235 years (1565-1763 and 1784-1821). It also is a unique specimen of long-vanished styles of military architecture and engineering.”
The Castillo de San Marcos was renamed Fort Marion after the United States acquired Florida from Spain in 1821. In 1942, Congress restored the original name.
