9781611172690: Crescent Moon over Carolina: William Moultrie and American Liberty

Crescent Moon over Carolina examines the life of Major General William Moultrie (1730–1805) who is best remembered for his valiant defense of an unfinished log fort on Sullivan’s Island at the entrance to Charleston harbor against a determined British naval attack on June 28, 1776. While the Continental Congress in Philadelphia considered a draft of the Declaration of Independence, Moultrie and his garrison of South Carolinians proved that untested, but courageous, American soldiers could stand firm and prevail against British might.
Every fort that has since occupied the site has borne his name, but Moultrie was more than the iconic defender of Charleston. Postwar he served two terms as governor and became one of South Carolina’s most influential elder statesmen during the early years of the American Republic.
In this first and only book-length biography of William Moultrie, C. L. Bragg combines a scholarly survey of lowcountry South Carolina culture, the American Revolution, and the early political history of the state and the United States. Bragg also brings to light primary sources that are published here for the first time―revealing documents that provide fresh insight into the political and cultural values of Moultrie and his fellow South Carolinians.
Crescent Moon over Carolina offers engaging narrative, detailed maps, and beautiful illustrations that will stand as an important addition to the body of literature for those interested in Revolutionary South Carolina. Bragg leaves us with a clearer understanding of Moultrie―a political and military leader who counted among his friends, associates, and correspondents many of our nation’s ardent patriots and founding fathers. Moultrie’s service to state and country has earned him a respected place in history.
