Fort Pulaski National Monument has one of the best preserved nineteenth century masonry fortifications in the United States. It was also the site of a major artillery duel during the Civil War that saw the first major use of rifled artillery in battle. You can tour the fortress, see living historians bringing the past to life, or watch an artillery demonstration that really immerses visitors with the sights and sounds of conflict. The monument however, is more than just a fort. We have over 5000 acres of pristine saltwater marsh, one of the largest concentrations of marsh along the coast of Georgia. Combine that with miles of trails and you have a great way to get away from our cultural history and surround yourself with the natural beauty of Cockspur Island, the heart of the monument.

This is a must see when you visit Tybee Island. Very well preserved. Guides are super knowledgeable. Even if you are only marginally interested in history, you should visit.

This was a large and attractive fort with a great history and nice views. It was an excellent opportunity for us to see exactly how the soldiers lived and fought. Nicely preserved with good grounds.
