This was the spot that started the US civil war in 1861. It was at the time that weapons were becoming ‘modern’ and the toll was heavy all through the USA.

The South Carolina Dept. Of Natural Resources has a dock on this side of the harbor. I found this monument in the back of their land.

The exact spot the whole mess started.
