Fort Sumter South Carolina

10422    

Fort Sumter is a masonry sea fort located in the Charleston Harbor in South Carolina. It is most famous for being the site where the first shots of the Civil War were fired in 1861. Constant bombardment of the fort by the Union forces during the Civil War left the fort in ruins.  Over time after the Civil War various reconstructions restored parts of the fort. It can be reached today by ferry.
