Fort Moultrie's history covers nearly two centuries of seacoast defense, including the first decisive victory in the American Revolution and the firing onto Fort Sumter during the first battle of the Civil War. The third Fort Moultrie, built in 1809, stands today. By touring the fort, visitors can see how coastal defenses have evolved through the centuries. This area is operated by the National Park Service.
