Fort McAllister is located south of Savannah on the banks of the Ogeechee River. This scenic park showcases the best preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads but did not fall until 1864 -- ending General William T. Sherman’s “March to the Sea." Visitors can explore the grounds with cannons, a hot shot furnace, bombproof barracks, palisades and more, while a Civil War museum contains artifacts, a video and gift shop. There are daily civil war programs including artillery, flags of the south, infantry or weapons. The fort also offers self-guided or guided tours. While exploring the fort you can also enjoy fishing, boating, hiking, biking and other recreational activities.
