Ft. Pulaski to remember historic seizure Thursday

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Fort Pulaski will remember history Thursday. 

Organizers at Fort Pulaski National Monument will mark the historic seizure of the Fort by Georgia state militia forces, which forcibly evicted the U.S. Army from the Fort on Jan. 3, 1861.  

The regular schedule of Fort tours and musket firing demonstrations will highlight the tense days of January 1861, as the country slowly unraveled on its way to Civil War.

The event starts at 9:30 a.m.
