Yellow Bluff Fort
Yellow Bluff Fort is a preserved Confederate earthen fortification and lookout tower built in 1862 to prevent Union gunboats from attacking Jacksonville. It is a labyrinth of trenches and earthworks built by Confederate soldiers and is located directly on the St Johns River. When it was built, it housed impressive cannons to ward off attacks from Union forces. Interestingly, the fort never saw any action during the Civil War but changed hands four times during that grim altercation. Admission to the fort is free.
This is a sufficient part of Jacksonville's Civil war history, and as you walk through and picture 1862 one could only imagine (kinda haunting), the city of Jacksonville, should do more in preserving the TOTAL HISTORY of our great city !
