Fort Pulaski National Monument

We visited the Fort Pulaski National Monument after the Tybee beach island.When we are at the entrance gate to pay we told the lady that we have a Senior National Park pass so  were all lucky to get a free admission through my Father-in-law.

Fort Pulaski National Monument is located between Savannah and Tybee Island, Georgia. It preserves Fort Pulaski, where in 1862 during the American Civil War, the Union Army successfully tested a rifled  cannon, the success of which rendered brick fortifications obsolete. The fort was also used as a prisoner-of-war camp. (source: Wikipedia)

During our tour we missed the cannon firing and musket demonstration though we have a tour guide so we learned many things about the History of Fort Pulaski National Monument. Indeed, it was a great place  to see  and learn the history and how important it was back then so the place is preserved and well maintained.I am thankful of what  is life today the freedom and all the technology we have today.

The fort took 18 years to build and was finished in 1829.

I like  how they design the room-well they have a good reason why it looks like this.
