Fantastic masonry fort built to withstand assault by the sea from the British. Greater importance in 1862 when it was seized by the Union troops as part of the blockade of the south.

The Fort had just reopened from Hurricane Matthew and even though we had an abbreviated tour it was filled with so much fascinating information and things pointed out by our awesome tour guide, Caroline! Be sure you take the tour with a Park Ranger Pro...well worth the time!

Due to Hurricane Matthew we couldn't go into the fort unattended. We went for the tour which lasts about an hour and it was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and you could tell he truly loved his job!

Very interesting. Highly recommended especially if you like civil war history. Some damage due to Hurricane Matthew but still a great tour.

Go with the guides. They tell the full, exciting story of the siege and construction of this amazing fort. Never crowded. Peaceful and beautiful setting. Damaged during Hurricane Matthew but it will open again soon. The Union rifle canons battered it worse. We've been more than a dozen times just for the quietude.

To think this place was dug out and built entirely by hand is hard to imagine. Just delivering the bricks to the island would be a mammoth undertaking. Well worth the time and small expense to experience for yourself.

We spent an afternoon here walking the grounds and joining a Ranger talk about the fort. If you have a chance definitely join a tour. This fort has a very interesting history.

The fort to see the cellars that ammunition was kept and the cannons and even the balls that they had. I don't know how they carried them. And so see a side wall that was hit by these cannon balls. Also saw where they might have slept and the equipment they use.
