Fort McRee - Pensacola's Lost Fort

When U.S. Engineers devised a plan for defending Pensacola Bay, they planned the construction of two forts on opposite sides of the entrance to the bay. One of these, Fort Pickens, still stands on the western end of Santa Rosa Island. The other, Fort McRee, stood on Foster's Bank opposite Fort Pickens, but has long since vanished.
