Fort Moultrie, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina was built by South Carolina patriots to protect Charleston Harbor. On June 28, 1776, British warships attacked the fort. William Moultrie, commander of the 2nd South Carolina Regiment, and his 400 men fought a day-long battle which ended with the heavily damaged British warships being driven from the area. Today, the fort has been restored to reflect the story of American sea coast defense through World War II. A visitor center is nearby.

Fort Moultrie Flag
The Fort Moultrie Flag was created by Colonel William Moultrie when he was ordered to take over Fort Johnson on James Island in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina in 1775.
In 1961-1965 I lived on Sullivan’s Island. We spent a lot of time during the summers on the Isle of Palms. The clubs at night, Old Side, Light House and the new Sea Side. The Old Side would sometimes have the Riveras or Dardenelles, both very good bands. The Light House would sometimes have Piano Calvin who also played at the Sands west of the Ashley. The New Sea Side would have big name bands like the Temptations. During the day we would hang out at Walter’s where the beer was 30¢.
