Folly Island, S.C., in the Civil War-- Part 4: Fort Green

A photo accompanies the article taken from the northern tip of Folly Island looking toward the southern tip of Morris Island with the lighthouse standing in the water.

Fort Green (1863-1865), was a Union fort on Folly island's east end at Lighthouse Inlet.  Nothing remains of it.  Back in the war, it consisted of ten separate, unnamed, batteries mounting 44 guns.

I've also seen it spelled Fort Greene.
