For the historians among you, here is a chance to see another beautifully restored fort! You certainly can get a feel for our national heritage. As we crossed onto the island where the Fort was located, we spotted another lighthouse, which was left unused and decaying. Not in use, nor is it open to the public. High tides prevent any visitors. Back to the fort - it was a very hot day when we went there to wander around. Ft. Pulaski was used primarily as protection for the port of Savannah. You could still see where damage was done to it by the many assaults. Bunkers around the outside of the fort were added after the close of the fort. In my vacation pictures, it reminded me (and others) of a golf course. They do keep the grounds in beautiful condition. Great place to have an educational experience with the kids! Bring history alive!
