Built-in 1899 during the Spanish-American War as one of six fortifications designed to protect the southeastern American coastline, Fort Fremont closed out a 350-year-old legacy of coastal fortifications in Port Royal Sound, South Carolina. It is an artifact of homeland security spanning European colonization and 19th-century imperialism.
