Very interesting Fort. The tour guide was very informative, and we were amazed about the building of a fort on basically swamp land and how it has held up over the years.

We really enjoyed the visit to Ft. Pulaski. Run by volunteers dressed in civil war uniforms and gave great historic rendering of firing the big cannons. Awesome displays. A wonderful engineering marvel.

When we travel we enjoy learning about the local history. Our guide was Amber and she provided a wealth of information in an interesting manner with some humor. Her knowledge of the Fort was impressive!
