Fort Pulaski postcard



Fort Pulaski is on an island on the waterways between Savannah and Tybee Island.

The back of the card says the Fort surrendered to U.S. Forces on April 11, 1862.

Rocky mailed us this card 165 years later when he visited the fort. On it he said something like “Hello to every postal employee between Savannah and Atlanta (I know you are reading).” Now, where did he get the idea that postal employees like to read post cards and share them with one another? Hmmm!

Anyway, Fort Pulaski is a nice interesting place to visit. I spent several hours there a few years ago while Anna was in Savannah at a business meeting.

Bird,
When I went it was February. It was pretty impressive. I like the moats. Not too many miles away on Amelia Island on the northeast most tip of Florida is a fort, something like Fort Clinch or something looks very similar to Ft. Puluski.

Ft. Pulaski sounds like it belongs in the Chicago area, where there is a local holiday in honor of Casimir Pulaski.

Suzanne,
On the surface I agree with you, "Ski" names are rare in these parts - or used to be before 1960 or so.

But, the name Pulaski seem to plentiful. Did you the birth of the KKK was in Puluski, Tennessee?
