Search Richmond Hill Georgia

Located on 1690 acres on the south bank of the Great Ogeechee River, this park is the home of the best preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The sand and mud earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads, but did not fall until captured in 1864 by General William T. Sherman during his famous March to the Sea. This coastal park, nestled among giant live oaks and beautiful salt marsh, offers a museum containing Civil War artifacts as well as camping and picnicking facilities.

Location: 144 Spur, Richmond Hill Georgia Telephone 912-727-2339
