Oceola
Patriot and Warrior
Died at Fort Moultrie
January 30th 1838

(Historical Marker):
A Seminole Leader
Perhaps Fort Moultrie's most celebrated resident was Osceola, famed Seminole leader who led his people in their fight to remain in Florida rather than submit to removal to the Indian Territory. Osceola was given freedom of the fort while being held here from January 1838, until his death from throat infection on January 30.

Patapsco Dead
Near the end of the Civil War on the night of January 15, 1865, the Union ironclad monitor U. S. S. Patapsco sank in Charleston harbor, victim of a Confederate mine. Sixty-two men lost their lives; five of them are buried here.
