Fort Sumter, South Carolina. The Fort Sumter story begins with the fort being built as protection for the United States after the attacks of the War of 1812, but the fort will go down in history as site of the Battle of Fort Sumter, the opening battle of the American Civil War. A timeline for the Battle of Fort Sumter begins on April 12, 1861 when the Confederate forces opened fire on the Federal fortification. Fort Sumter fell to the Confederate troops after nearly two days of fighting and it took the Union nearly four years to recapture Fort Sumter. Fort Sumter is a National Monument administered by the National Parks Service. For a map of Fort Sumter, tours and pictures of Fort Sumter, SC, visit www.nps.gov/fosu.  [Top]

Fort Moultrie Tours. Located on Sullivan's Island near Charleston, South Carolina, the image of Fort Moultrie, SC occupies a special place in American and South Carolina history. The original Fort Moultrie was constructed of palmetto logs and was the site the first big victory over the British Navy in the Revolutionary War, which the American Colonists won after a 9-1/2 hour battle for Sullivan's Island. The South Carolina flag symbol of the palmetto takes its meaning from Fort Moultrie, and the palmetto is still the symbol of South Carolina, which refers to itself as “The Palmetto State.” Fort Moultrie Tours are part of the Fort Sumter National Monument.
