Before you looms Fort Brady, one of the best-preserved Civil War forts in the National Park Service. Like most of the fortifications built during the Civil War, Fort Brady was made of earth instead of fragile bricks. Dirt could better withstand the heavy artillery projectiles used by both sides.

Union gunners who occupied Fort Brady for six months between October 1864 and April 1865 found garrison life anything but dull. Confederate gunners, stationed in batteries across the James River, shelled the fort frequently, and one major attack in January 1865 resulted in many Union casualties.
