Castillo de San Marcos National Monument

para defenderse. Las esquinas sobresalientes en forma de diamante, llamadas baluartes, generaban el fuego cruzado para repeler al enemigo. Desde los baluartes y la cortina, los disparos de los cañones podían detener o atacar a un ejército en avance. El foso ancho, ubicado a la base de las murallas, dejaba a los invasores sin resguardo y permitía que los disparos de los fusiles llovieran desde arriba. Las gruesas murallas y una pendiente ascendente desviaban cañonazos enemigos. El diseño de la fortaleza resistió la prueba del tiempo: pese a los ataques, el Castillo de San Marcos nunca fue conquistado.
