Tour Historic Fort Pulaski History buffs will enjoy visiting this 19th century fort, which was occupied by the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Construction began in 1827, when future Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was placed in charge of designing the first series of canals and earthworks on the island. Finished in 1847, it was eventually used as a Union prison, holding more than 500 Confederate prisoners (aka the “immortal 600”) during the winter of 1864. Today, visitors can explore the pentagon-shaped fortress along with its galleries and drawbridges crossing the moat and view the shells from 1862 embedded in the walls.
