Castle Clinton. Wait, you mean they even have a castle? Well, no. The Clinton honored in this naming was DeWitt Clinton; mayor of New York City from 1803 to 1815 and governor of New York State from 1817 to 1822 and 1825 to 1828. In admiration of his service to the state, a sandstone fort built to protect the United States from the British in the War of 1812 was named in his honor. Actually completed in 1811, it was constructed on a man made island off the coast of Manhattan. Despite its original (and obvious purpose) Castle Clinton never saw a single battle. Well not a war based one, anyway. Read more
