Thursday Doors – 11

Strong Doors

On the way from Savannah to Tybee Island you will pass Cockspur Island with Fort Pulaski. Well, don’t pass it. It is a great place to visit. Back some two centuries ago strong forts, built with brick and stones, were the finest in defensive military installations. Fort Pulaski protected the approach to Savannah. It has an interesting claim to fame. It fell to new technology, that of rifled cannons. Cannons used to have smooth bores, then spiral grooves were machined inside which gave the rounds a twist as they were fired and the resulting spin stabilized the flight. Cannons were now accurate enough to hit a small target and could be aimed and fired to do so repeatedly.

The thick brick walls of Fort Pulaski were smashed by the relentless fire of Union forces in 1862. The garrison soon surrendered. This marked the end of heavy walled forts.


The heavy doors are now open to visitors.


Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. The activity is conducted by Norman Frampton.
