About this spot
Fort Pulaski is a brick and mortar fortress built to control the sea approaches to the Port of Savannah, Georgia, USA. Construction began in 1836, but was not completed until the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861. It was initially held by Confederate (Southern) forces. In early 1861 Union forces occupied surrounding areas and, in April, besieged the fort. Unfortunately for the Confederate defenders, recent technology in the form of rifled artillery made forts of this design obsolete. The brick and mortar walls were quickly breached and the Confederates surrendered after a 30 hour siege.
