Charleston celebrated the 236th anniversary of the Patriot's victory in the Battle of Sullivan's Island today with a parade.
June 28 is known as "Carolina Day" as many celebrate the Revolutionary War victory at Fort Moultrie over a British fleet that was attacking Charleston. The walls of Fort Moultrie were made of Palmetto Tree logs, which the British cannonballs could not penetrate.
Today's anniversary was marked with a downtown parade and a wreath laying ceremony at the Battery.
Days after the victory, the founders signed the Declaration of Independence.
