The Fort King George is one of the oldest British forts in the state of Georgia. Built in 1721 under the supervision of Colonel John “Tuscarora Jack” Barnwell, the troops stationed here suffered from malaria owing to poor hygiene. Flooding of river, constant threat of invasion, lack of sufficient food supply further added to their woes. Eventually, the fort was abandoned and later a replica of the fort was erected for public viewing.
