Fort Pulaski National Monument

The cemetery at Fort Pulaski marks the final resting place for workers, families, and soldiers. Union and Confederate soldiers, as well as the people who built the fort and supported the troops garrisoned here, once shared this hallowed ground. After the Civil War, the US Army moved the Union troops' remains to Beaufort National Cemetery in South Carolina, but the others remain.
Thirteen unmarked graves contain the remains of Confederate officers from a group known as the "Immortal 600." Some of these 600 Confederate officers were imprisoned at Fort Pulaski from October 1864 to March 1865. Here they endured starvation and sickness during a bitterly cold winter. In March, the survivors were transferred to Fort Delaware on Pea Patch Island off the Delaware shore.
