Fort Barrancas is a phenomenal multi-national American historic site as it has been occupied by Spain, France, England, the Confederacy, and the United States. In 1559, Spain established a settlement in Florida on Pensacola Bay but the site was abandoned soon afterward. Spaniards revived the settlement in 1698, surrendered it to the French in 1719, regained it by treaty in 1722, ceded it to the English in 1763, and repossessed it by force in 1781. From 1839–1844, the historic Spanish fort on the hill was reconstructed. The US deactivated Fort Barrancas on April 15, 1947 following World War II.
