Shackles at the Museum at Fort Moultrie, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina
SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, South Carolina - The museum features an exhibit titled African Passages that focuses on Sullivan's Island's history as one of the primary slave-trade ports in the United States. Fort Moultrie is part of the Fort Sumter National Monument at the entrance to Charleston Harbor in South Carolina. The fort has played a crucial role in defending the harbor from the time of the Revolutionary War through World War II. During that time it has undergone multiple upgrades, from the original palmetto log walls to the newer heavily fortified earthen bunkers.
