Paddle to the Past
Steve Braden is leading a new history series for us this year...kicking off with the Civil War History of Tybee Island/Fort Pulaski.
Steve has extensively researched and mapped out the location of the Tybee Island earth batteries. We are all aware of the story and location of the siege of Fort Pulaski, but even the official historical marker is in the wrong place, pointing the wrong way. Steve has a plan for preserving these sites, before they are completely lost to development, and even combining them into an education based walking trail.
He recently presented his ideas to the Tybee City Council who were most impressed. The City Council asked for copies of Steve's research for the Tybee archives.
