I have finally cleared the backlog of forts I have visited with the photo-survey of Fort Pulaski. This is the fort that was subjected to a bombardment with rifled cannon which spelled the end of masonry forts. Take a look if you are into US Third System forts or the US Civil War link

Been there, the damage is impressive.

Very worth a visit. Note that much of the fort's walls were restored by WPA work during the Depression. The surviving damage is the lightly damaged portions of the walls ;-).

Fort Pulaski is also featured in The Asylum film, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies

Did garrison duty there back in my reenactor days. Most memorable moment was playing base ball on the parade ground and a friend hit a ball out of the fort. Too bad it was foul.

Do you mean to say that wasn't a documentary????

I've been there, its really a nice trip. We were in Savannah for a living history and drove there to take advantage of how close we were. Most memorable line was when we were standing on the wall watching some Federal reenactors walking towards the fort and a friend of mine piped up with, "I laugh at you and your so called Lincoln president. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elder berries."

We also made the trip to Fort McCallister which was also a great side trip.

My wife and I were in Savannah a couple of years ago (mostly for the food!) and spent an afternoon at Ft Pulaski (with a side trip the next day to Ft. McCallister as well).

Well worth the trip. The ranger's description of the pounding the fort took was the highlight of the tour.
