Fort Screven was first commissioned in the late 1890s on the north end of Tybee Island, Georgia. It was named after Brigadier General James Screven, an American Revolutionary War hero who was killed in action near Midway, Georgia in 1778. The Fort served as a valuable part of coastal defense until it was decommissioned in 1947.
