Fort Frederica no longer exists. Despite this unpleasant fact, there is still a Fort Frederica National Park on St. Simon's Island in Georgia! Why
is there a park for a nonexistant fort? Because Fort Frederica was important.
All starforts are of course important,
but few as important as Fort Frederica, at least in the context of British colony of Georgia in North America.
As one of James Oglethorpe's first colonies in Georgia, Fort Frederica secured British land claims from the wicked Spanish. Oglethorpe & co. besieged the Castillo de San Marcos
in St. Augustine, Florida in 1740, and, in a neighborly fashion, Spain returned the favor in 1742.
