  • Beautiful Fort! It is also FREE to visit! Great museum about all its history and amazing to walk around its walls.

  • I was stationed there from July 1968 - January 1969 and was assigned to the 50th Army Band, "The Continental Army Band." We played evening concerts at Continental Park and did what we called "March Arounds" inside the mote. The chief engineer for the construction of Fort Monroe AND Fort Pulaski in Savannah, Georgia, was Robert E. Lee. There is an historical marker in front of his home at Fort Monroe.
  • Outstanding in all the services performed throughout the civil war. Worth visiting
  • I was stationed at Fort Monroe in 1967 (Women's Army Corps) and I must say that my experience there was awesome. Anyone who was there during that time knows the fun we had as young soldiers. (Mary Frank)
