Book about Fort Warren on George's Island in Boston Harbor: "Fort Warren is a pentagonal-shaped, granite fort built on an island in Boston Harbor in time for the Civil War. It defended Boston during the Spanish-American War and through World Wars I and II. Fort Warren is listed as a National Historic Landmark. It achieved its place in history primarily because of the many famous Confederate prisoners who were incarcerated within its walls. Today, more than 100,00 people visit the fort each summer. It is now the centerpiece of the Boston Harbor Islands National Park."
