Carolina Trip Pt. 3: Imporant Places in United States History

While in Charleston, I went to explore Fort Moultrie. Fort Moultrie is on Sullivan Island was set up to protect Charleston. On June 28, 1776 For Moultrie was attacked by British troops led by Commodore Sir Peter Parker. The British attacked while at sea, floating on their massive warships. After a nine hour battle, the Commodore and his troops were defeated and forced to retreat. Charleston was saved from the clutches of the British! At least for a while. (info found here)

Apparently, like many old places, the fort is thought to be haunted. However, I did not spot one ghost. I was hoping that an unnoticed ghost would appear in my pictures (like often happens in scary movies) but no such luck!
