Scenic Sunday Fortified

For more beautiful scenery, check out Scenic Sunday!

This is the place where I volunteer.  The three-deck ferry docked there is named the Spirit of Carolina usually runs off the Patriot’s Point side of the harbor.  The place is none other than Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the “Late Unpleasantness” [Civil War] were fired.  The fort was held for 34 hours by the Union until a fire broke out in the fort and caused Major Anderson to surrender due to too few men to fight the fire and work the cannons.

Thanks for visiting! Happy Spring!
