1001 Ways to get TYBEE-IZED:The Siege at Ft. Pulaski

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.
