Fort Walker

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“View from the interior of Fort Walker, Hilton Head, S. C. looking inland, showing the defenses from the land side. We have given so full a description of this fort that we have now merely to add that our view was taken inside the fortification, looking to the interior of Hilton Head Island. Fort Walker was nearly surrounded on its land side by the Federal camp, which had been strengthened by earthworks extending across the island. Camp Sherman was, therefore, protected by Scull’s Creek on the west, Fort Welles (lately called Fort Walker) on the north, the Atlantic on the east, and by this intrenchment on the south."— Frank Leslie, 1896
