Overview
More
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.

Volunteers were great and very informative. Plan at least an hour and 1/2 to spend. Views are great from atop the fort.

Always enjoy visiting the fort. Well kept, beautifully preserved not any evidence of restored, even replaced woodwork looks old, which it should. Great history area for all to enjoy.

This Fort has a great Civil War history, which should be read about prior to your visit, first as a Confederate fortification and later as a Union Army compound and a prisoner of war "camp." It may be interesting to just stroll around, look out...More
