Fort Pulaski - John Walker Guss. The primary purpose of this innovative and massive fortification along the coast of Georgia was to protect the Savannah River and the valuable port city of Savannah, originally settled by Gen. James Oglethorpe in 1733. Oddly enough, all of these innovative forts that had been constructed to defend against foreign invaders never felt any serious threats during their early years of standing watch over the US coastlines.

Georgia was one of the original seven slave states that formed the Confederate States of America in February 1861, triggering the . Civil War. The state governor, Democrat Joseph E. Brown, wanted locally raised troops to be used only for the defence of Georgia, in defiance of Confederate president Jefferson Davis, who wanted to deploy them on other battlefronts.

Like stalwart soldiers standing silent guard, the mighty fortresses of Savannah once served as guardians over the new colony of Georgia. In 1733, Gen. James Oglethorpe, upon stepping ashore in this new world, authorized fortifications to be constructed to protect her new residents. Forts and townships now known only in name defended Georgia's first citizens against the Native Americans and the Spanish. Later they would stand a much greater challenge protecting them against more aggressive foes-the British, the Union Army, and ultimately, the Third Reich of Germany. Through vintage photographs of these magnificent architectural structures and the faces of devoted soldiers who once stood upon their ramparts, readers will feel as if they too were standing a vigilant watch, looking across the vast marshes and rivers surrounding Savannah. The images within these pages celebrate and honor the fortresses that allowed Savannah to prosper and expand from a colonial outpost to the majestic queen city of Georgia.
