Ft. Pulaski to mark seizure by state militia

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Fort Pulaski National Monument will spend the first weekend of the new year recognizing the historic seizure of the Fort by Georgia state militia forces. 

On January 3, 1861, the U.S. Army was forcibly evicted from the Fort, as the country slowly unraveled into Civil War. 

To simulate the historic event, the Georgia Flag of Secession will fly above the Fort Jan. 3 until March 4th.
