Fort Zachary Taylor State Park Ranger Charles Blevin gave a tour of Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park and talked about the history of the fort. Construction started on the fort in 1845 as part of an effort to build masonry fortresses along America’s eastern coastline. The fort was considered state of the art at the time it was built, and was used by Union troops during the Civil War.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Key West, Florida, from April 23-28 to feature the history and literary life of the community.
