On June 28, 1776, what was then called Fort Sullivan was just a fort made of logs, and, even worse, its construction wasn't finished. Located on Sullivan's Island in South Carolina, it was attacked by British warships that day. A nine-hour battle resulted in an American victory that sent the British ships away heavily damaged. The fort was later renamed in honor of Colonel William Moultrie, the man who commanded it during the battle.
This embroidered patch commemorates that victory and especially the defense of the fort, showing a color illustration of soldiers standing by a flag of Colonel Moultrie's own design with explosions and battle smoke in the background. The words The Defence of Fort Moultrie, the date of the battle, and the location complete this historical tribute.

When I visited Fort Moultrie, this patch was not available in their gift shop. So when I saw this one now available at eParks.com, I just had to have it! It is top quality, very colorful, and will make a proud addition to my motorcycle vest. I now look forward to visiting Fort Moultrie once again on my next ride to the Charleston area!
