Fort Pulaski National Monument has one of the best preserved nineteenth century masonry fortifications in the United States. It was also the site of a major artillery duel during the Civil War that saw the first major use of rifled artillery in battle. You can tour the fortress, see living historians bringing the past to life, or watch an artillery demonstration that really immerses visitors with the sights and sounds of conflict. The monument however, is more than just a fort. We have over 5000 acres of pristine saltwater marsh, one of the largest concentrations of marsh along the coast of Georgia. Combine that with miles of trails and you have a great way to get away from our cultural history and surround yourself with the natural beauty of Cockspur Island, the heart of the monument.

After Old Fort Jackson, this offers a contrast in styles. So much history to digest in one day! Lots of walking to be done, but it's worth it!

This is a very pretty spot on the way to Tybee Island. The fort itself is important not so much as a garrison but for the 30 hour bombardment it underwent during the Civil War, the damage from which is still visible. Although not a...More

It took 25 million bricks, and 18 years of labor, to construct this seemingly impregnable fort. It was surrendered after less than two days of bombardment. Much valor was exhibited by both the Union and Confederate sides. Google the attraction to find out why, and...More

This was a fun excursion to go on with the kids. They enjoyed running around the fort, looking at cannons, and standing up top peering across the water at a different state. They were very entertained at the idea of looking into South Carolina. In...More
