Design - a - Fort

Fortifications are the result of adaptations over centuries of use. When military technology changed, such as the invention of the cannon, fortifications adapted. During the Civil War military technology changed drastically. Shell guns and rifled cannon made brick fortifications obsolete. Fort Moultrie and Fort Sumter's earthwork structure represents the fortifications which were used until World War II.
