Spanish American War Reenactors

Once a month, Fort Clinch in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, Florida has reenactors. They are usually dressed in Civil War period costumes.  Recently, they represented the Spanish American War of 1898.  As it happens, 1898 in Fernandina is the setting of my upcoming book Mark of a Man, the third novel in my Amelia Island's Goodbye Lie Trilogy.  I took over 200 photos, the best to use in MM's promotional video. There is so much history here.  Below are a few of the pictures of this beautiful place.
