Fort McAllister program


Liberty County Coastal Courier
February 24, 2006

Jason Burns, deputy state archaeologist-underwater for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, will explore the history of one of the Confederate's most famous blockade-runners Saturday at Fort McAllister.

DNR's Historic Preservation Division conducted the Ogeechee River Underwater Archaeology survey throughout 2005, documenting the Civil War remains of the Naval battles that took place during the Civil War near Fort McAllister and Richmond Hill, Georgia. Those remains include the blockade-runner CSS Nashville.

Learn about her crew, missions and her destruction. The program begins at noon at the fort's museum. Admission is $4 for adults and $2.50 for children.

Fort McAllister is operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and can be reached from I-95, by taking Georgia Highway 144, to spur 144 east.
