Charleston Trip July 10 -12, 2017: Fort Sumter

Mom and I took a boat ride over to Fort Sumter in the Charleston Harbor while at Patriots Point. Fort Sumter is the location of the first shots of the American Civil War. Patriots Point is one of tow locations where you can board a boat to go to Fort Sumter. The other is a build next to the South Carolina Aquarium across the copper River in Charleston. On the boat trip you hear the history Charleston and several landmarks are pointed out.
