Fort Wagner free pdf Excerpt from Fort Wagner: Fifty-Fourth Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers Morris Island, bordering the Atlantic Ocean, along which lay the main ship-channel leading into Charleston Harbor, on. the 18th of July, 1863, presented a rare spectacle of modern warfare. Off its shores lay the iron-clads, gunboats, mortar-boats, and supply-vessels of Admiral Dahlgren's squadron- the broad expanse of beach extending along its eastern face was filled with a gathering host- while here and there, nestling in the sand-hills, were the camps of the troops, now almost deserted. Lighthouse Inlet, separating Morris Island from Folly Island, bore on its waters, and along its banks, busy transports, conveying troops or unloading stores. On the higher hills of Morris Island were groups of officers, soldiers, newspaper correspondents, and civilians, watching the events that were transpiring. Charleston, the "Culprit City," with its spires piercing the distant horizon, was plainly in view. Across the waters of the beautiful harbor, on Sullivan's Island was Fort Moultrie- on Shute's Folly, Castle Pinckney- surmounting the middle ground. Fort Ripley- across the marshes, Fort Johnson and the James Island batteries- and amid the waters, flying the Southern cross of the whilom Confederacy, loomed the high walls of Fort Sumter. Where the higher sand-hills gave place to lower stretches of white dunes, from the sea to the marshes, extended our batteries, arranged in a semicircle- and in them were mounted forty-two guns and mortars. Beyond that point, northward, the island was but a narrow strip of sand between the sea and Vincent's Creek, and which, for the last three-quarters of a mile, curved to the north and west.
