Today, June 28th, we South Carolinians celebrate Carolina Day, which is to commemorate the victory of the Patriots at the Battle of Sullivan’s Island on this day in 1776. One of the first major victories of the Revolutionary War. Those brave men in that small palmetto tree made fort, and the men on the beaches, fought off the British and won. I am so proud to say my 6th great grandfather, Peter Hubbard, was among the men who fought on the island that day. The fort was later renamed Fort Moultrie after Colonel William Moultrie, who commanded the troops at the fort. Huzzah!!
