Named for that gallant Pole, Gen. Casimir Pulaski who lost his life in the unsuccessful siege of Savannah in 1779, Fort Pulaski was built between 1829 and the mid-1840's on Cockspur Island to guard the sea-approach to Savannah. During the Civil War, occupied by Confederate troops in 1861, the fort fell to Union forces in April, 1862, when they overcame it with rifled cannon, the first used in warfare.
