    Cause of the Confederate Capitulation

After 30 hours of bombardment by 30 Pdr. Parrott rifles, James system rifles(48 and 84 Pdrs.), columbiads and numerous 13 Inch Seacoast Mortars, Model 1861, a breech was made in the southeast salient. Shells started to impact in the area of the powder magazine in the northwest corner of the fort. You can still see where the brickwork was gouged out by shell fragments near the magazine door and above, all around one of the ventilation louvers. Any thinking person would agree that it was white flag time. Explosion of the magazine could have destroyed a third of the fort and killed hundreds of men.
