To protect the city of Charleston, a series of fortifications named after General William Moultrie were built on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina. The first among these forts were built from the palmetto logs which stood strong under the British bombardment and instead of breaking, it absorbed the cannonball shots and reportedly even bounced them off the walls. This palmetto log fort lead South Carolina to gets its nick name as “The Palmetto State.”

While the first fort was still being built, the British Commodore Sir Peter Parker attacked it on June 28, 1776 with nine warships. After a nine-hour battle, with heavily damaged ships, the British were forced to retreat. After this victory under the commander in the battle, George William Moultrie, the fort was name Fort Moultrie. William Jasper a sergeant in second South Carolina Regiment had an important role to play in defending the Fort Moultrie. When a shell from a British war ship shot away the flagstaff containing the flag designed by William Moultrie, Jasper recovered the flag and held it up till a new permanent flag post was produced, this inspired the troops who held out until sunset and won the battle.

Fort Moultrie boasts of a 171-year history of American seacoast defense. After being neglected and rebuilt several times, in 1809 a third Fort Moultrie was built in Sullivan’s Island and was established as national site in 1948. In 1960 Fort Moultrie was transferred to National Park Services by the Department of Defense.

The Obverse side of each of the Fort Moultrie at Fort Sumter National Monument silver Coin is graced by the profile portrait of George Washington, which is a design by John Flanagan and was originally used on the 1932 Washington Quarters. To bring out the subtle details, the original design was restored resulting in a remarkably detailed design with a brilliant finish. Inscriptions are “United States of America,” “In God We Trust,” “Liberty,” “Quarter Dollar.”

The reverse exhibits a design by Richard Scott and sculpted by Joseph Menna shows Sergeant William Jasper returning the regimental flag to the ramparts while under attack from a British ship. This design was selected from among seven other candidates. Inscriptions are “FORT MOULTRIE,” “SOUTH CAROLINA,” “E Pluribus Unum,” with the year of Mintage (2016).
