"Although the fort has gained national attention for its part in the American Civil War, Fort Sumter was originally built following the War of 1812 in an attempt to further secure the Mexican – American border. The fort was built chiefly with slave labor and was actually unfinished in 1860 at the start of the Civil War. The Civil War Fort Sumter has the distinction of being the location of the first fired shots of the Civil War. Today, the Fort Sumter National Monument commemorates the events of the Civil War and the battle that was started at its gates. The Fort Sumter Tour Company runs shuttle boats from Charleston to the fort from Liberty Square or Patriot’s Point, both located in Charleston. Liberty Square is a popular departure choice for visitors staying in downtown Charlotte hotels, as the square is also located downtown. Although admission to the Fort Sumter Civil War Museum is free of charge, the boat ride will cost guests $12 for an adult and around $6 for children ages 6-11. Children age 5 and under can ride on the boat for free."
