Behold the Civil War Stronghold of Fort Pulaski

This 5,600-acre national park was the site of a major Civil War battle. Part of the Union's plan to cripple the South was taking Fort Pulaski. Savannah, GA was a key port city for the Confederacy, guarded by this stalwart post off Tybee Island. The Union's rifle cannon technology proved too brutal an onslaught to withstand, though, and the South was forced to surrender. Today, cannon damage is still visible on the fort's exterior, with an indoor museum, and daily historic weapon demonstrations.

FAQs

  • Who was Colonel Charles H. Olmstead?

    Col. Olmstead was the Confederate commander of Fort Pulaski when it was attacked in April of 1862. He initially rejected the Union's offer of surrender, but had a change of heart when the walls were breached by their formidable rifled cannon. This decision plagued him until his death.
  • Can you see a weapons demonstration at the fort?

    You certainly can! Historic weapons are fired for demonstration purposes at 1:30pm, Sunday-Friday, as well as at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm on Saturdays.
