Fort Hamer, Florida
Fort Hamer was established on November 28, 1849 as part of an order by Major General David E. Twiggs to remove Seminole people from Florida after various pioneer outposts in the state were attacked by Seminole outsiders. The order established a 200-mile-span (320 km) of forts from Manatee River to the Indian River.
