Dec. 13th, Federal forces overwhelm the garrison at Fort McAllister after a spirited fight the fort is captured. Sherman watched the assault from a rice mill across the river. With the Ogeechee River open, supplies begin to flow in to the army. Sherman has a 1000′ long wharf built at King’s Bridge on the Ogeechee River. This area is now a park with a boat ramp where the Hwy. 17 crosses the Ogeechee River.
Here is a link to the images from the Fort McAllister Reenactment from mid December.
The images are free to download and if you see one that you would like for me to alter, by making it black and white, sepia, wet plate, etc, just let me know and I will do that for you. I can also try to DEFARB images as well if you would like that. Please share the images with any other reenactors that you know that were there.
