Fort McAllister

Fort McAllister


Richmond Hill, Georgia (GA), US
Located on the south bank of the Ogeechee River, east of Richmond Hill, Fort McAllister State Park is the home of the best preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The earthworks and bombproofs withstood bombardments by heavy Union naval guns and have been restored to their 1863-64 appearance.

A museum offers many Civil War artifacts, including the famed Confederate blockade-runner, Nashville, destroyed in 1863 by the monitor Montauk in the Ogeechee River above the fortification.
