Fort Sumpter 4/12/2006

We decided to visit Fort Sumpter during the beatourist promotion in Charleston that is offered every January. We enjoyed the boat ride, and the brief tour overview pointing out the various islands and other landmarks along the way. Although Fort Sumpter is fairly barren compared to other historical forts and places, its significance lies in the origination of the Civil War. The tour guide at the fort was superb, and greatly added to our understanding of the events that occurred at Fort Sumpter and Fort Moultrie. The museum was interesting to tour, and the rest of the grounds were also fairly informative. more

nice tours and info 10/17/2005

Not a Civil War buff? No problem! Ft Sumpter, located right off shore in Charleston’s harbor, is a national monument that anyone can enjoy. You cruise out to the island and are dropped off to explore the fort at your own pace, and are free to catch any of that days returning boats when finished. Being at Fort Sumpter feels like stepping back in time. more

Wonderful piece of American History 10/8/2005

Ft. Sumter was where the Civil War (or War Against The States) was innitiated. There are several places to take the tour, one originates downtown, the other from Patriot's Point in Mt. Pleasant. The tour is via ferry, and can be chilly during the wintertime, so make sure to dress warmly then (even in spring and late summer when the winds are chilly). The Fort itself is unassuming and has definitely seen better days. Of course, it was built several hundred years ago and amazingly still stands proudly to this day. Tours are self-guided (as far as I know) and you can spend your leisure walking around the grounds. There is a museum there that tells of the fort's history before and after the Civil War. Very informative and a definite must-see for anyone who is a local or a tourist. more

Take a boat and see a fort~ 9/30/2005

As you know, Ft. Sumter was the birthplace of the Civil War, and for about $20 a person you can take a boat-ride out to Ft. Sumter and see the fort and pretend you're a yankee firing on those ungrateful southerners. Or, you can pretend to be a rebel warrior, protecting your homeland from those yankee carpetbaggers. Whatever your fancy, you'll sure have fun at Ft. Sumter. The grounds are kind of creepy because there's dark crumbling nooks here and there. They say you'll have bad luck if you take any of the rock wall with you---I don't know if it's true. I think they tell you that so that 10,000,000 tourists a year don't take 10,000,000 peices of the rock wall because if that happeend, there would be no more Fort. But still. Don't take the rock wall or any other artifacts you find. Give them to the helpful people that work there so that they can put them in the museum on site and charge admission for YOU to see the nail YOU found. more
