Fort Pulaski National Monument

Since 1867, the island has grown due to dredging.
Cockspur Island was once much smaller than it is today. Since the end of the Civil War through the 1980s, the Savannah River was dredged to make it deep enough for ocean-going container ships.
River mud was deposited on the island, slowly expanding its footprint. When the river is dredged today, river mud is no longer deposited on Cockspur Island.
