An impregnable fortress
When completed in 1847, Fort Pulaski was considered a state-of-the-art defensive position, an almost impregnable fortress. But the fort actually fell rather easily to Union forces during the Civil War. This well preserved National Monument is now a great place for the whole family to have an outing.
Visitors can walk about atop and inside these protective walls, and also enjoy educations tour and multimedia presentation by park rangers. This fascinating fortress, a last link with medieval castle thought, is a fascinating side trip. Also enjoy the over 5,000 acres of trails and salt marshes here.
