Old Fort Jackson in Savannah Georgia
Quantum Tour proudly presents Old Fort Jackson in Historic Savannah Georgia. Old Fort Jackson is the oldest standing fort in Georgia. Used extensively during the War of 1812 and the Civil War, Fort Jackson stands on the River near Savannah and was the home port for the ironclad CSS Georgia which was scuttled across the river from the fort to keep the ironclad out of the hands of the Union Army when Union General Sherman neared Savannah on his infamous "March to the Sea". Being heavily outnumbered Confederate troops pulled back from Savannah as Sherman pushed near after taking Fort McAllister in Richmond Hill Georgia.
