A Florida State Park and National Historic Landmark centered on a Civil War-era fort located near the southern tip of Key West, Florida. In 1968, volunteers led by Howard S. England excavated Civil War guns and ammunition buried in long-abandoned parts of the fort, which was soon discovered to house the nation's largest collection of Civil War cannons.
