Built in 1859, Fort Delaware served as a Civil War prison which held close to 33,000 Confederate POWs during the Civil War. Today, costumed interpreters take you back to the summer of 1864. Tour the parade ground, officers’ quarters, barracks, kitchen, blacksmith shop and ordnance room. Engage with fort historians dressed in period clothing, and hear stories of those who lived at the fort in 1864. Learn more about Fort Delaware!
