The Remnants Of This Abandoned Fort In South Carolina Are Hauntingly Beautiful

Fort Moultrie on Sullivan’s Island is a great example of coastal defense fortifications employed in the U.S. from 1776-1947. It’s operated by the National Park Service and offers great insight into the life and battles along the South Carolina coast during a handful of major battles and during peacetime. Restored to demonstrate the various forts that have existed here, Fort Moultrie is abandoned as far as coastal defense is concerned, and the remains are hauntingly beautiful.
