Fort Moultrie

Fought on June 28, 1776, the battle of Sullivan’s Island was America’s first major decisive victory in the Revolutionary War. In the 91⁄2-hour engagement, South Carolina Patriots, manning an incomplete palmetto log and sand fort, defeated a British naval force of nine warships. Charleston was saved from British occupation for four more years, and the fort was named in honor of its commander, Colonel William Moultrie.
