We visited Civil War Fort Pulaski near Savannah, Georgia in May 2019. It took 18 years to build the fort and only 30 hours for the northern Union armies to capture it. The main reason for this was that the fort wasn’t built to defend against the more technological advances of weapons in the Civil War. In fact, the large number of casualties during the Civil War was due to the use of outdated tactics against the technological advancements of weaponry during the Civil War as well.
Join us next time when we explore the Native American mounds at Ocmulgee National Monument, Georgia.
