This state park is 1.3 acres of American history. Take a walk and enjoy the Civil War-era defenses still standing today. Earthworks, or mounded up dirt used in defensive fighting, can be found throughout the park. These T-shaped fortifications were used to protect troops and guns from enemy forces. Step into the shoes of a Civil War soldier and explore the expansive system of trenches that has survived the test of time within Yellow Bluff. Replica cannons and a monument honoring the troops that served there can also be found in the park. Ready for lunch? Two picnic tables are offered for your convenience. Have lunch where acclaimed military regiments were stationed, including the 54th Massachusetts African-American regiment. When you visit Yellow Bluff Fort Historic State Park, you become one with history.
