In the sunny state of Florida, some old star-shaped forts are a remnant of the past. These forts are unique in their geometric design and have always intrigued tourists and historians. One of the most noteworthy forts is the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States. It has been standing strong since its completion in 1695.

The design of star forts was a popular choice in military engineering during the 16th and 17th centuries. These forts were characterized by their bastioned corners extending outwards like points on a star. This design served a strategic purpose by allowing defenders to cover all angles of approach with cannons. Additionally, the star-shaped design was aesthetically pleasing.

A mysterious narrative is associated with the forts in Florida, linking them to the Tartarian Empire. According to a modern conspiracy theory, this empire was a global superpower that has been erased from history books. Supporters of this theory suggest that the star forts in Florida and similar structures found worldwide were constructed by this advanced civilization, supposedly destroyed by a cataclysmic event.
