A Revolutionary War era map of Charleston, South Carolina, with Charleston Harbor and Charleston Bar. The map is a detailed battle plan of the British siege of the city and the Battle of Sullivan’s Island in June of 1776. The British forces were led by General Sir Henry Clinton and Commodore (later Admiral) Sir Peter Parker. A numerically inferior Colonial force with poorly constructed defences on Sullivan’s Island achieved victory over the British. The Americans, under the command of William Moultrie, successfully repelled the British attack and inflicted significant losses and damages on their fleet. Charleston would be secure for another four years.
