Fort Pulaski National Monument offers visitors and guests daily interpretive programs including guided fort tours, fort orientations, and historic weapons demonstrations. 

Named for Casimir Pulaski who lost his life in the unsuccessful siege of Savannah in 1779, Fort Pulaski was built between 1829 and 1847 on Cockspur Island to guard the sea-approach to Savannah. During the American Civil War, occupied by Confederate troops in 1861, the fort fell to Union forces in April, 1862.  This was the first time rifled cannon were used in warfare.
