Our Trip to the End of the World, Part 2

On our way back up from Venice, Louisiana, E and I spotted the entrance to Fort Jackson. I am embarassed to say that as a native Louisianian, I did not know of Fort Jackson's existence.

Fort Jackson was built between 1822 and 1832 about 40 miles north of the mouth of the Mississippi River. It was a crucial site in the Civil War. Unfortunately the fort is closed to visitors now because they say it is in disrepair. E and I were able to walk around the outside and take some pictures. I loved that there is a moat around the entire place. We were nearly eaten alive by mosquitos but our visit was worth it.
