Buildings at Fort Pickens

Today I walked around Fort Pickens taking pictures and tomorrow I will be going on a tour. This for was intended to be used to protect the US on the coast of Florida but was actually used more for the Civil War. It was built by Souther black slaves and also housed Geronimo a famous Indian Chief who was being held prisoner because he would not give up his right to freedom to the U.S. government. So sad.
