History of Fort Wadsworth

During the American Civil War, Fort Wadsworth stood as a mirror-image across the bay from Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn. These two fortifications provided protection from the advances of the Confederate armies at major entry points to the rest of the eastern seaboard. However, the Fort dates back two centuries before the civil war, when it kept the United State safe from the British during the Revolutionary War. Although the Fort no longer acts as protection against invaders, it is still a prominent feature along the Staten Island coastline, providing visitors with the opportunity to take a history lesson in the area's importance to national defense via museums, memorials, and a visitor's center that offers guided tours.
