Inscription
Located about 5 miles E. of here, this Confederate fort included a blockhouse pierced for musketry and earthworks surrounded by a ditch about 10 ft. broad and 5 ft. deep. The fort was captured Jan 1863 by U.S. Navy Lt. Wm. B. Cushing and twenty-five men while looking for blockage-runner pilots. Cushing held the fort briefly until his supply of ammunition was exhausted.
