“Great Historical Reminder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

This is an excellent representative of the early wars of the south. The fort is nicely sized for a walking tour and includes the replica cannons for comparisons of the weapons and ammunition used at that time. Tybee Island is just down the road, so you can combine a good historical reminder with a beach walk!

“Great Fort to see battle scars!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

Great fort to see what life in a fort was like during those times. Also loved the actual scars in the walls of fort from shelling during Civil War. Rangers are very helpful and informative. Easy trip if you are visiting Savannah.

“Interesting fort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

The national monument is really worth seeing. You can walk around the entire fort and experience its history. We enjoyed an informative musket firing demonstration. You can explore the fort on your own or at certain times they do tours of the fort. They also do nature walks out to the light house which we found very interesting. Our guide was very helpful and we learnt a lot about the plants and animals. She provided us with insect repellent which is a must around there.

“See and feel history here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

A must for all visitors. One side of the Fort still has cannon scars. If you walk around the Fort, you can feel the wind and see the isolation and smell the sea.
It is hauntingly beautiful.

“Great for Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is a great tourist stop for kids. It's not too expensive & there's lots of access for exploring in the underground tunnels & on the lookout posts
