1730 - 1805

Major General William Moultrie
1730 - 1805

Commander of
Second South Carolina Regiment
During the Battle of Sullivan's Island
June 28, 1776

When offered inducements by Lord Charles
Montagu to desert the American cause,
General Moultrie replied "...you have forgot
to tell me how I am to get rid of the
feelings of an injured honest heart, and
where to hide myself from myself...this would
be a fatal exchange from my present situation,
with an easy and approved conscience of
having done my duty, and conducted myself
as a man of honor."

The remains of General Moultrie were recovered
from Windsor Hill Plantation, Charleston County,
and reinterred at Fort Moultrie, 1978.
