Fort Frederik (St. Croix) Although built to protect the islands from pirates, it was from rebellious slaves that it offered the most protection in 1848, when eight thousand of them marched to the fort to demand freedom. Today the fort is home to a museum where visitors can learn more about the march and other details of the islands history. Visit the USVI www.visitusvi.com
