It’s the 149th Anniversary of the Siege and Reduction of Fort Pulaski!
During the Civil War, Union troops launched the first systematic use of rifled artillery against a masonry fort. They lined up cannons and bombarded Ft. Pulaski until the walls were breached and the Union Troops took over. This one battle changed the make-up and design of future forts around the world!
Ft. Pulaski and the Tybee Island Historical Society will commemorate this historic battle April 9 and 10, 2011. Among the many demonstrations and re-enactments, cannon firings and soldier maneuvers will be presented.
Come out, learn and enjoy the monumental history of Ft. Pulaski and the Tybee Island Lighthouse.
