Quick trip down history lane in South Carolina and Georgia

Quick trip down history lane in South Carolina and Georgia
Fort Pulaski,on Cockspur Island,Georgia.
In the days before the Civil War, brick forts were America's main defense against overseas enemies. In one two-day battle during the Civil War, new technology proved its superiority to brick forts. The Union army used rifled cannons to compel a surrender by Confederates inside Fort Pulaski. No one ever built a brick fort again after the battle.
