A place for teachers and students, history buffs, or the just plain curious, Fort Sumter should be a stop on everyone’s Charleston itinerary. The place where the Civil War officially began in 1861, it is said that actual first shot fired did not actually even hit anything but was fired into the air as a signal for the Confederates to open-fire.
The Monument area is designed for both adults and children and there are hands-on exhibits, as well as curriculum ideas for teachers wishing to plan ahead for field trips. Some exhibits do have restrictions based on time of year or mobility and the link at the bottom of this page will offer further information and fun facts about this most important piece of our history.
