Entry Title Date
Fort Pulaski National Monument Lease Authorization Act December 9, 2011
Jack Kingston, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to support passage of S. 535, the Fort Pulaski National Monument Lease Authorization Act, which would allow the Savannah Bar Pilots 10-year leases for their operating base on Cockspur Island which they have used continuously in cooperation with the National Park Service since 1940. I also would like to thank Chairman Hastings and Chairman Bishop for holding hearings and bringing this bill to the Floor today."
Fort Pulaski National Monument Lease Authorization Act July 13, 2010
Jack Kingston, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, in the simplest terms, my bill allows the Secretary of the Interior to enter into a lease with the Savannah Bar Pilots Association for the Bar Pilots’ continued use of the pilot base located on Cockspur Island at Fort Pulaski National Monument. They currently operate under a similar arrangement, and this bill simply aims to prolong the relationship between the Park Service and the Bar Pilots. Since 1940, the Pilots Association has continuously occupied a facility at Fort Pulaski which acts as a station for the pilots to move to and from the vessels that call on the Port of Savannah. The original special use permit allowing the pilots’ station at Fort Pulaski was the result of a direct order from the Secretary of the Interior."
Tribute To General Robert E. Lee January 19, 2007
Jim Marshall, D-GA
"Lee also dedicated himself to his country—graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and accepting a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Lee’s first assignment was in Georgia, where he supervised the construction of Fort Pulaski on Cockspur Island."
