Blacksmithing Demonstration at Fort McAllister

June 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$5

Friday at the Forge

 
This living history program will demonstrate blacksmithing methods used during the Civil War.

Located south of Savannah on the banks of the Ogeechee River, Fort McAllister showcases the best-preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads but did not fall until 1864—ending General William T. Sherman’s “March to the Sea.” Visitors can explore the grounds with cannons, a hot shot furnace, bombproof barracks, palisades and more, while a Civil War museum contains artifacts, a video and gift shop.
