St. Simons Island, Ga. (PRWEB) January 17, 2007
Experience life in 1736 Georgia at the Fort Frederica Living History Festival, February 17 on St Simons Island, Ga.
The festival, which will celebrate the 271st anniversary of the founding of Frederica, will bring to life the hustling, bustling town with living history events and programs, a musket drill and firing, cannon firing, children's events and more. All of the day's activities are designed to engage visitors, especially children, and the event is a great opportunity to explore and learn about the lives of the original residents of the town and fort.
Established in 1736, Fort Frederica was built to protect the southern boundary of the new colony of Georgia from the Spanish in Florida. Georgia's fate was decided in 1742 when Spanish and British forces clashed on St. Simons Island. Fort Frederica's troops defeated the Spanish, ensuring Georgia's future as a British colony. Today, the archeological remnants of Frederica are protected by the National Park Service.
