Fort Moultrie and Charles Pinckney NHS

The evening of July 31 we went south to the Charleston area to Fort Moultrie and the Charles Pinckney NHS.




Fort Moultrie had a exhibit dedicated to the WAC. Nannie was stationed at Charleston during her service in the WAC. I was hoping to find a list of names, but no luck! Still...I can just picture her in a uniforn not too different from this one.








Fort Moultrie was basically a series of mound with tunnels and such through them. And some big guns...





We arrived at the Charles Pinckney NHS 10 minutes before it closed so we didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked here. Here is what the website says about the site

"Charles Pinckney was a principal author and a signer of the United States Constitution. This remnant of his coastal plantation is preserved to tell the story of a "forgotten founder," his life of public service, the lives of enslaved African Americans on South Carolina Lowcountry plantations and their influences on Charles Pinckney."

After those two parks we head north west and stayed in a hotel very close to Congaree, the next national park we wanted to visit.
