Part of a War of 1812 project to construct forts for defense along the East Coast, Fort Pulaski was built on Cockspur Island to protect the Savannah River in Georgia. Using photos, illustrations, and reenactments, this DVD documentary explores the construction of the fort and what happened there during the Civil War, including Robert E. Lee's leadership and the Union's artillery bombardment and subsequent Confederate surrender. How did the Union artillery do so much damage to the fort in spite of its distance? Find out that and more in this documentary.
