Did some time traveling to Fort Desoto this past Sunday. The park will host reenactments from time to time, even though the Fort saw no actual battles.

It and neighboring Egmont Key were established as a munitions training area by the army in 1898, and abandoned in stages from 1910 to the 1940’s.

Actor Henry Fonda helped open the park on May 11, 1963.
