    Federal Fort Putnam; Before September 1863, Confederate Battery Gregg


The Morris Island, South Carolina batteries were numerous and heavily armed during the Civil War. Battery Gregg and Fort Wagner were the two which held out for two full months in July and August of 1863 against General Quincy Gilmore`s seige operatons. The fortified `parallels` started at more than a mile away and ended up less than 50 FEET away before the Confederates left on September 7, 1863. Fort Putnam was a strengthened and better armed fort under Federal control and it was significantly closer to Fort Sumter which was very difficult to defeat as an earthwork fort which it had become after the numerous terrific bombardments by Federal land and naval guns.
