Brimstone Hill Fortress- St. Kitts (West Indies)

The Brimstone Hill Fortress was first built by the British in 1690 from African slave workers. It was built primarily to recapture Fort Charles on the coast below from French occupation. In 1782 the French soldiers attacked this island and regained control of St. Kitts. Finally when the Treaty of Versailles was issued, the island was given back to the British and fortifications were continued until 1794. In 1852, British troops were reassigned and the Fortress was abandoned.
