Visit this Southern Fort that played a huge role in the American Civil War.

Construction of Fort Sumter began in 1829. It was heavily targeted by the Union army and eventually, the Fort fell under the hands of the Union. The longest siege in our nation's military history occurred at Fort Sumter, where they sieged Charleston, South Carolina. It is estimated that over 50 Confederate soldiers were killed during this siege while defending the Fort.

Take a tour of Fort Sumter and learn about the history of what happened during the Civil War. You can take a ferry ride out to the Fort from one of two locations, Liberty Square Visitor Education Center or Patriots Point Naval Maritime Museum. Tour tickets can be purchased here. During the tour, you will see where the first shots of the Civil War happened and discover details of the war. This tour is available year-round, but departure times will vary. If you love American history, this is a great place to visit in South Carolina.
