This was the last fort to realize the North had won the civil war...yep they were still fighting after the war was declared over...just a very neat little place in the middle of nowhere. Worth a trip if you are in to civil war history.

This is a very interesting place to visit if you like history about the civil war and you can walk up to the fort and the real cannons.

Interesting little known site. For a battle that was fought after the surrender of R.E. Lee. A bit of a up hill walk but well worth it

Nice recreated earthworks fort in the middle of a small town in Georgia. Very quiet and peaceful area. My only complaint was that the top of the hill where the fort is located was covered in trash.

That Battle of West Point was April 16, 1865....one full week after Lee's surrender. That's why you should visit Fort Tyler. It's beautifully restored, small enough to understand, and well marked and documented. Take your family there ....the children will love it.
