Fort Sumter National Monument
The site of the civil war battle between North and South Carolina on April 12, 1861, Fort Sumter National Monument is a must-see. Located in the Charleston harbor, the monument is home to one of the best collections of 19th century seacoast artillery found in America.
Upon arriving on the island, listen to a brief recorded National Park Service ranger history talk before continuing your self-guided tour of the fort. There are few better ways to experience coastal SC.
After ferrying back to the mainland, visit the Fort Sumter Visitor Education Center in Charleston for further education on the fort and the events leading up to the battle. Stroll through the museum exhibits to learn more of the fort's rich history. Visit the bookstore to browse the interpretive items.
