A Plan of the Attack of Fort Sullivan near Charles Town in South Carolina.

The inset map and the written account details the dramatic action surrounding the British naval assault on Fort Sullivan (called here ‘Sulivan’), which was considered to be the strategic key to Charleston.

Further Information

The chart includes a beautiful view of Charlestown[1] from the south shore of the Ashley River, and gives a clear picture of how well-fortified the town was in 1777.  Accurate soundings of the harbor and rivers are included, as one might expect of a survey intended for military use.  Of great interest are the changes which have occurred in the geography of the harbor - for instance, the island upon which Fort Sumter now stands, and upon which the Confederate artillery fired the opening shots of the Civil war on April 12 1861, did not exist in 1777.
