We took a quick trip to Charleston, South Carolina before we were moved to the Georgia Macon mission.  Charleston is a beautiful city with a lot of history.  In the old part of Charleston, buildings cannot be demolished but have to be remodeled to retain the historical significance.  So there are a number of buildings that date back to the 1700's.  We took a Gray Line tour of the city and then went to visit Fort Sumter out in the harbor.

Fort Sumter is a small island in the mouth of Charleston Harbor.  If you don't control  the land on both sides of the opening to the harbor, you are just a target which is what happened when the South started the Civil War or the War of Aggression as the Southerners call it.

This is an unexploded shell that was lodged in the wall of the fort.
