Fort Pulaski National Monument

Casimir Pulaski became a national hero in Poland when he fought for Polish liberty against Russian and Prussian forces in 1771. A year later, Poland lost the fight and Pulaski was forced to flee his homeland. He met Benjamin Franklin in Paris in 1777 and was inspired to join America's fight for freedom.
Pulaski became known as the "Father of the American Cavalry" when Congress selected him to command the newly formed cavalry unit in 1778. He was mortally wounded during the Battle for Savannah in 1779. This fort's name honors his supreme sacrifice for liberty.
"I came here, where freedom is being defended, to serve it and to live or die for it." Casimir Pulaski
