Overview

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.

My sweetie & I visited over Memorial Day weekend but we went on the same day we visited Old Fort Jackson. Fort Pulaski closes at 1700, strange b/c the sun is out longer during summer. We had little time to visit before the park closed....More

My husband and I enjoy visiting historical places, and we did enjoy our visit to Fort Pulaski. We did not take a tour, and I honestly don't remember if one was offered. We walked around and explored on our own. Recommend.

We love Civil War history. Our boys really enjoyed walking around this fort. Unfortunately, we did not get to go up on the top due to lightning. Our pass was good for a few days, but we did not have enough time to go back....More

History comes alive at Ft. Pulaski.....civil war fort right outside of Tybee island...park rangers do a great job at the history of the fort ....the live fire is added bonus as one meanders through the fort...a must for civil war buffs
