General Note

  • Fort Clinch is located on the north end of Amelia Island, near Florida's east coast border with Georgia. The fort was named for General Duncan Lamont Clinch, an important figure in Florida's Seminole War of the 1830s.
  • Construction of the fort was begun in 1847 but never completed. It was a safe haven for blockade runners during the Civil War and was briefly occupied by Confederate forces. Captured by Federal troops in 1862, it gave the Union control of the adjacent Georgia and Florida coasts. Today, park rangers dressed in Union uniforms carry out the daily chores of garrison soldiers from the Civil War era.
