South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Greenwood County Photos | Star Fort Fountain
Constructed by Loyalist soldiers and slaves from nearby farms and plantations, the Star Fort was completed in early 1781. Its unique design and 14-foot earthen walls provided unmatched protection and allowed musket and cannon fire in all directions. The Star Fort was home to several important battles, including the Siege of Star Fort, which was the longest siege of the Revolutionary War. Learn more about the Star Fort here.
