Ft. Wade

At Fort Wade the mortar will take you back so you can imagine it firing from a barge on the river towards Grand Gulf. This mortar belonged to the Union and was found on Davis Island when this park began.  Excavation of the Ammunition Magazine began in 1977 by an anthropology professor and seven students and continued in the 1980's so that our visitors today can picture the way it was during the Civil War.
