“Veterans Weekend”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

So lots going on - and of course it was free ! The Americans really seem to honour their veterans.
Re-enactors firing muskets and cannon, lots of volunteers enthusiastically explaining the history of this very complete fort. Being a very sunny day probably helped.
Highly recommended

“Beautiful fort, great history”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We came down here on our way from Savannah to St. Simons and enjoyed our detour. The fort is beautiful, really exquisitely preserved and you can nearly imagine its straight lines drawn on paper.

The staff members were friendly and there was a musket demonstration inside the fort. It was neat to go up to the upper level and see the views of the area.

It certainly was worth the detour!

“Government Shutdown”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Would love to tour Fort Pulaski, but the monument was closed during our visit due to the government shutdown. We did get to see the fort from a distance and it did look impressive. We were told during a tour with the state operated Fort Jackson that Fort Pulaski fell during the Civil War and it was Fort Jackson which held the Union forces at bay from capturing Savannah, Georgia, until General Sherman finally captured the city after his march across Georgia.

“Historic island fort with a part in war between the states and a view of modern shipping.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

This fort was a small player in the war between the states but yielded change to how forts were built in the future. Great demonstrations of the time and war equipment. Great for kids as well as the young at heart.
