Sunbury Georgia on the Medway River
My day started out with the intention of visiting a Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge near Townsend Georgia. Along the way I stumbled upon this Revolutionary War fort and museum.
The museum has an interesting display of the events of 1778
Located in Sunbury Georgia a once bustling seaport only second to Savannah.
None of the homes remain today. The cemetery holds the only physical remains with 34 markers standing dating back to 1788.
As we move on from the museum the historical marker tells the story of the fort
Fort Morris was built entirely of earth and wood. The site features Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 earthworks.
What Sunbury offers today……
A beautiful view
And an interesting site for archeological findings….
Bring your appetite………
