Ive spent a number of hours in this fort and just love it. It is exactly what you would think a civil war fort would be. Lots of cannons housed in a huge brick fort that was heavily bombarded from Tybee Island during the civil war when it fell to the Union rifled barreled guns. Walk around to the front of the fort outside and you can see damage from these guns which made the fort outdated. Supposedly this fort fell within 36 hours of bombardment unlike Fort McAllister which is an earthen fort and held throughout the Civil War and had to be taken by land from Shermans troops during his march to the sea.
