Long Description:
Fort Moultrie II 1794 - 1804--Fort Moultrie II was an enclosed five-sided earthwork, partly faced with brick, surrounded by a ditch and glacis. Within the fort were a hot-shot furnace, powder magazine and bombproof. Officers’ quarters, enlisted men’s barracks, and the bake oven stood behind the fort.

Fort Moultrie II had a short life. Completed in 1798 in response to disagreements with France, it stood until wrecked by a hurricane in 1804.

Fort Moultrie was redesigned to protect Charleston against small sailing frigates. It could not have stood against ships-of-the-line.
