During the early months of the Civil War,Fort Jackson's Garrison was composedof local militia units which served rotating tours of duty at the fort. One of these units was the Republican Blues commandedby John Wayne Anderson.
The Blues were first organized in 1808 andhad previously served at Fort Jacksonduring the War of 1812. The Blues, typicalof Savannah's old military units, were afraternal social organization as well as awell trained military unit. Their Civil War service at Fort Jackson began when they were transferred from nearby Wassau Island on November 12, 1861. Their tour of dutyat Fort Jackson ended on August 20, 1862.

We are very near fixed and it is the first timeI ever saw the Blues satisfied. They are willing to stay in these quarters.
Quote commenting on FortJackson from the diary of Lt. William D. Dixon, Republican Blues.
