This fort, designed by a young engineer named Robert E. Lee, was said to be impenetrable. However, the Federal army proved that theory wrong when they overtook it in less than a day. The many tunnels inside the fort make it very interesting to explore. There is also a moat which surrounds its outer walls. The visitors center provides helpful information about the fort's history and also displays several artifacts, such as Confederate flags and uniforms, and various photos from the time period, as well as a film about the battle that took place here.
