Wallpaper Description:
At the start of the Spanish-American War, Fort Dade was established on Egmont Key to protect Tampa Bay from a Spanish attack. It consisted of several coastal artillery batteries protecting the main ship channel into Tampa Bay, as well as a secondary channel to the south of the island. A hospital at Fort Dade was used to quarantine all American soldiers returning from Cuba for 10 days.
Durring WWI Fort Dade was used as a training center for the National Guard Coast Artillery Units. The Fort was deactivated in 1921. Egmont Key was put to military use again durring WWII, as a harbor patrol station and a ammunition storage facility.

I took a mini vacation to beautiful historical Fort De Soto Park, Pinellas County, Florida. We took a ferry out to the Island of Egmont Key, where 3 of the 5 artillery forts remain. To step foot on this island is to step back into time. What a fun, relaxing day of exotic beach~mixed with war history, and a ghost town!!
After we walked the trails on Fort Dade, we explored the wonders of the other two forts located on Mullet Key Island~Fort De Soto.
I wanted to share a few pictures with all of my DN friends :)
I hope you enjoy!!
