It is evident that there is English influence here with the moat, drawbridge and gate. Almost like you stepped back in time. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable. It really reminds you of how far we have come over the years in military experience. I...More

Having graduated from a military college, military tactics have always giving me the advantage in buffet lines, but I got more than that out of it. It also instilled within me a love of military history and military fortifications. When traveling I never miss visiting...More

What a great site to tour if you are a Civil War buff. Military science was explained in the video shown at the Visitors Center. Be ready to pay an entrance fee if you do not have a National Park Visitors Pass. A must see...More

Amazingly well preserved fort from the past. The grounds are maintained really nicely, and the entire area is free to roam around. You could easily spend 2-3 hours there before you've seen everything. Don't forget to walk some of the paths through the woods to...More

Enjoyed visiting here a lot. Love seeing how our ancestors lived, survived, fought battles. Very nice people, even a cannonball firing exhibition. Very clean, fun place. Even an over priced gift shop lol.

What a blast (literally!)! My three year old and I went to see the fort. The rein-actors were amazing and answered questions. The canon showing was amazing and we both enjoyed it. Keep up the amazing work!

Second visit to this fort. As a photographer I want to find the unusual situation and enjoy spending time exploring and contrasting Civil War era forts. Certainly in better shape than Fort Sumter. Great for the history and impressive views

Our tour guide really brought this place to life. Its military history is interesting — and as a feat of engineering, it boggles the mind. Our guide explained both these aspects well and thoroughly answered the many questions lobbed at him. The intro video at...More
