In some respects it resembles the harbor of New York, although it is on a much smaller scale. The city of Charleston stands on a neck of land, bounded by two rivers, and projecting into a narrow bay. The bay was protected by Fort Pinkney, Fort Ripley, Fort Moultrie, Fort Beauregard. Fort Sumter, Battery Bee, Battery Gregg, Battery Wagner, etc. These defences were so placed that a vessel attempting to pass Sumter would be under a cross-fire from them all. every fort being armed with the heaviest and most destructive ordnance then known. After crossing the bar. there were several channels leading into Charleston harbor — the Main-Ship Channel. North Channel and Swash Channel. In taking either of these, a vessel would be under a raking and cross fire. Should she get by Sumter, she would still

en took in his whole force of iron-clads and battered the fort into sand-heaps. History cannot but award great praise to the brave Confederates who remained at their posts for two months under this terrible fire, and kept a great Army and Navy at bay until their interior defences were so strengthened that they could afford to abandon the outer work. The operations of the iron-clads at Morris Island were appropriately closed by a severe contest with Forts Moultrie and Beauregard, Battery Bee, and all the batteries on Sullivan's Island, to relieve the Weehawken, which vessel had grounded under their guns and was in great danger, the tide having fallen and exposed her unprotected hull. This last affair showed conclusively that Fort Moultrie and the batteries mentioned might have been attacked with success, could a strong force of Federal troops with heavy rifled guns have been stationed on Sullivan's Island, to co-operate, as was done at Morris Island.
