Description

On April 16, 1865, Union troops attacked the earthen fort in West Point, Georgia. Many soldiers lost their lives that day, unaware that Lee had surrendered to Grant seven days prior. Fort Tyler was the last Confederate fort captured by the Union, giving it the distinction, "Last Fort to Fall."
Fort Tyler is an official Civil War Discovery Trail site. The Civil War Discovery Trail links more than 300 sites in 16 states to inspire and to teach the story of the Civil War and its haunting impact on America. The Trail, an initiative of the Civil War Preservation Trust, allows visitors to explore battlefields, historic homes, railroad stations, cemeteries, parks, and other destinations that bring history to life.
A marked trail leads visitors to the site of the small earthen fort. Open year round.
