Fort Pulaski National Monument
In 1847, Fort Pulaski was considered a state-of-the-art defense system, though it fell easily to Union troops during the Civil War. The fort has been well preserved, and visitors may roam through its protective brick walls. A video presentation, exhibits offer a historical visual while park rangers share details on the history of the monument and its role in history. The monument consists of 5,623 acres including nature trails, picnic areas and spectacular views of the salt marshes.
I have been to Ft. Pulaski a few times over my lifetime. The historical value and the learning of such information is invaluable. The maintenance over the years shows evidence of concerned workers who take pride in their facility. The guides and any performers have always been very educational and appropriately entertaining. The visual affect of standing on such an integral site is amazing!
Fort Pulaski is a pretty neat place. The fort is well kept, and the staff is knowledgeable and capable. It's not the world's most interesting or significant fort, perhaps, by which I mean that it's rather small, but it is well worth the 15 minutes from Savannah. I enjoyed it a lot.
