Sullivan's Island, South Carolina

South Carolina Charleston County Sullivan's Island

Sullivan's Island is located just across the Intracoastal Waterway from Mount Pleasant in Charleston County.

In 1776, it was here, in a makeshift log fort at the tip of the island, that colonial forces under Colonel William Moultrie prevailed against British troops who were trying to enter Charleston's harbor. The palmetto logs used in the construction of the fort proved to be key to the victory. The tree trunks were extraordinarily spongy, deflecting (and often seamlessly absorbing!) a steady barrage of British cannon balls. Later, the fort was named for Colonel Moultrie and the palmetto tree became the centerpiece of South Carolina's state flag.

Today, Sullivan's Island is mainly residential with a remarkable absence of commercial development. Charleston is the largest city near Sullivan's Island. Here is a map of the Charleston area.
