Fort Moultrie (South Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 6
Cost of Bombarding. --A letter from Charleston to the N. O. Delta, gives the following item of the expense to be incurred in the siege of Sumter: "Every gun fired from Fort Sumter costs, on an average, thirteen dollars. Every gun fired by the State will be an average expenditure of nine dollars. A prominent officer of Fort Moultrie informs me that, by a close calculation, it has been ascertained that when its batteries open, the cost per diem to the State, at that fort alone, will exceed $15,000. Pretty heavy, that. But this is the surest way of mastering the fort, and we had better spend money than lives in its acquisition."
