Fort McAllister State Historic Park


3894 Fort McAllister Road
Richmond Hill, GA 31324
United States

Located on the south bank of the Great Ogeechee River, this park is the home of the most well-preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The sand and mud earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads but did not fall until captured in 1864 by Gen. William T. Sherman. This coastal park, nestled among giant live oaks and a beautiful salt marsh, offers a museum containing Civil War artifacts as well as camping and picnic facilities.
