What was the significance of the Confederate surrender of Fort Pulaski during the American Civil War?
The textbook answer to the significance of Fort Pulaski's surrender is deceptively simple. The two day battle demonstrated the range and accuracy of the experimental rifled projectile rendering brick forts obsolete. The loss of the fort at the mouth of the Savannah River also tightened the Union naval blockade restricting access to much needed supplies. Lesser known, however, is the impact of Union Major General David Hunter's order calling for the immediate release of area enslaved persons. Hunter was one of a few select Union officers whose orders preceded President Abraham Lincoln's issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation.
