Old Fort Jackson

Fort Jackson is Georgia’s oldest brick fortification.  It served as the Headquarters for the Confederate Coastal Defensive fortifications that protected the Savannah River.  The Union Navy was never able to capture the fort and it was not until General Sherman occupied the City of Savannah, that the fort changed hands.
