Built in 1899 during the Spanish-American War as one of six fortifications designed to protect the southeastern American coastline, Fort Fremont closed out a 350 year old legacy of coastal fortifications in Port Royal Sound, South Carolina. It is an artifact of homeland security spanning European colonization and 19th century imperialism. This film documents how geography, technology, national security, and politics interacted to shape the fortunes of a community during the Spanish-American War.
