DescriptionOne of the Confederacy's best-preserved earthwork fortifications stands silent sentinal along the Ogeechee River to a time when it protected the Old South from seven major assaults by the best guns the Union Navy could muster. But on December 13, 1864, General William T. Sherman's division of 4,500 men overran the 230 Southern soldiers left to defend the fort during the death knell of the Confederacy. The site was once owned by Henry Ford, who began an extensive restoration in the late 1930's, and the fort eventually fell into the hands of the state of Georgia, which restored it to its 1863-64 appearance. You can wander around the walls and through the interior and look inside its central bombproof, but be careful not to climb on these earthen structures, which are extremely susceptible to erosion form foot traffic. To learn more of the story, visit the onsite Civil War museum. Its hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday - Saturday and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
