Welcome to the Fort Sumter - Fort Moultrie Trust
Sunset Cruise Fundraiser
Enjoy a sunset cruise to Fort Sumter in support of Kids to the Parks, our education outreach program. Meet Civil War historians and Trust board members as National Park Service staff lead behind-the-scenes tours and students from Charleston County School District's arts program entertain. The special evening culminates with "War and Wardrobe", a presentation by Mary Hatcher and Jean Hutchinson using diaries of the time and period clothing to examine the hardships of wartime endured on the homefront during the Civil War. A leisurely cruise of the harbor and Charleston's twinkling lights guarantees to delight guests and friends, old and new. Join us in connecting Charleston youth to our powerful history!
