Fort Moultrie, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina
SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, South Carolina - Harbor Entrance Control Post/Harbor Defense Command Post operational in 1944-45. From this camouflaged concrete observation post, Army and Navy personnel kept a round-the-clock vigil to protect Charleston Harbor. In the foreground is a GE spotlight, while the entrance to Charleston Harbor, with a ship passing through it, is in the background. 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.
