I love JESUS! I'm a 7th-generation Florida native, dyed-in-the-wool Southron belle. I just recently dusted off my genealogy notes and, thanks to a long-lost relative, nearly doubled the details. We started home schooling when only 'outlaws' did it and still enjoy a daily quest for knowledge. These days, the family spends a lot of time birding, butterflying, spending as much time in 'the woods' as possible while they're still here.
Fort Jefferson at Dry Tortugas National Park, on the Dry Tortugas islands west of Key West, is the largest brick fort in the Western Hemisphere. (It was built with more than 16 million bricks!) The fort’s walls are 8 feet thick and about 45 feet high.
