DP Challenge: Heritage
Here two photos of a tombstone (front and back) in Fort Pulaski, Georgia. Part of our heritage as Americans.
Wars are part of our history. Civil wars are perhaps the most difficult to understand, since it is a fight among county men. Sometimes I hear folks trying to adjust history to make it more palatable. In all its beauty and in all its ugliness, our heritage should be remembered as it happened. Perhaps if we remember, we will not make the same mistakes.
Remembering our heritage is important.
Daily Post Photo Challenge: Danger
Here is a shot of Fort Pulaski in Georgia. This is the side of the fort that sustained the heaviest cannon fire from the Union Troops. This damage was ultimately the reason that the fort surrendered during the Civil War. For me not having experienced war, it is hard to imagine the “danger” that soldiers on both sides experience. But seeing the pockmarks in a brick structure, makes it more real.
Anyone visiting the Savannah area, Fort Pulaski is truly a worthy side trip. I hope you can come and see us.
Here is my “arty” take on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Steps, Stairs and Ladders
It is a shot within Fort Pulaski looking down the stairway from the ramparts.
The steps are steep and since they spiral they fade to nothing on one side. This is one of those places that engender images of someone (aka Tybee Tabby) taking a header and being carted off in an ambulance.
