One of the Guns at Fort McAllisiter in Bryan County

 Fort McAllister is an earthen fort constructed by the Confederates at Genesis Point on the Ogeechee River. It was one of three forts defending Savannah. It held on against a few attacks by the Union Navy. It was stormed and taken on December 13, 1864 in a fifteen minute battle by some of Sherman's troops. The fort is just a part of Fort McAllister State Park.
