Union vs. Confederate soldiers baseball game, Savannah

Fort Pulaski National Monument will celebrate the Nation’s 235th Birthday with special patriotic living history activities throughout Independence Day weekend. Highlights of the three-day weekend will include cannon firings, guided fort tours, and a Civil War baseball game using 19th-century rules and equipment. This year, Fort Pulaski National Monument will partner with the Coastal Heritage Society, who operates Old Fort Jackson, in its annual “Blue vs. Gray” baseball game. Employees and volunteers from Fort Pulaski National Monument and Old Fort Jackson will portray Union and Confederate soldiers, respectively, in an authentic Civil War baseball game. The blue and gray teams represent the two sides of the Civil War, who both occupied Fort Pulaski during different time periods.

An entrance fee of $5 per person is charged; ages 15 and under are free. Call the park at (912) 786-5787 for details, or visit the park’s official website at www.nps.gov/fopu.
