Practice what you preach! And I do, too! Always speaking about balancing that martini glass on your lower belly, when I teach #pilates - well here it is, folks! Granted it’s a can of #champagne but fact remains... stability before mobility! #pilatesbody #pilateslingo #instructorlife #charleston #fortsumter
Taking the boat to Fort Sumter today! #excursioneverywhere #travelblogger #travelblog #fortsumter
Toured Charleston this past weekend. City brimming with history. 🚌 tour was great and took ferry to fort sumter. Had plenty of lowcountry fare at Circa 1886 for dinner and Experienced the she crab soup and flounder at Hayman’s. Stayed at Wentworth mansions - recommend this historical B&B. Took hundreds of photos will post when I have the energy. Nice and hot. #nikon1v3 #charleston #circa1886 #wentworthmansion #fortsumter
De oudste stad in South Carolina is het historische Charleston. Een stad die de erfenis van de Amerikaanse burgeroorlog nog altijd met zich meedraagt. Breng een bezoek aan Fort Sumter en aan de vele plantages in deze regio en leer meer over dit bewogen stuk geschiedenis. Maar het moderne Charleston is niet alleen treurig het heeft ook gezellige terrasjes, uitstekende restaurants en ook nog veel leuke strandjes. Ook is het mogelijk om een bootje te huren en een heerlijke middag te genieten op het water of te wandelen door de stad en de bijzondere architectuur te bewonderen. Charleston is een charmante stad die je absoluut bezocht moet hebben tijdens je rondreis door het diepe zuiden! Wat zijn jouw tips voor Charleston?
Channeled my inner #history nerd today and visited #fortsumter . It was very interesting to say the least, and I would def recommend it! These were quick iPhone shots, so I might post some that I took with my Nikon later. . . . . #charleston #SC #charlestonsc #southcarolina #palmettostate #lowcountry #exploresc #holycity #civilwar #civilwarhistory #americanhistory #america #iphonephotography
April 12th, 1861. Fort Sumter, South Carolina. The first shots fired by Confederate Forces against a Federal Military installation...thus starting the Civil War. The fort fell into Confederate control after a full day of an artillery barrage and a naval blockade. The Confederate Army held the fort and reinforced its defenses. Union Forces attempts to take control of the fort were unsuccessful via bombardments and amphibious attacks. The Confederate Army never surrendered the fort. They abandoned Ft. Sumter only after orders by the high command. The fort later became a part of the Inter-Coastal Artillery Defense System “Battery Hunger” and was in operational status until 1946. Today, the fort is completely different from how it looked during the Civil War. Being destroyed by battle and then modernization, the fort would be unrecognizable to the solider who served here in the Civil War. #fortsumter #charlestonsc #charleston #civilwarhistory #forts #americanflag #americanhistory #militaryveteran #marineveteran #multicam #multicampattern #tripleaughtdesign #duluthtradingco #merrell #randolphengineering #explore

The sister Fort to Moultrie. Both of these beauts defended Charleston harbor against any threats to South Carolina and her interests. #fortsumter #southcarolina #thesouth

An 1865 view inside of Fort Sumter. #AmericanCivilWar #FortSumter #SouthCarolina
Just before dawn on May 13, 1862, #RobertSmalls and a crew composed of fellow #slaves , in the absence of the white captain and his two mates, slipped a #cotton steamer off the dock, picked up family members at a rendezvous point, then slowly navigated their way through the #harbor . Smalls, doubling as the captain, even donning the captain’s wide-brimmed straw hat to help to hide his face, responded with the proper coded signals at two Confederate checkpoints, including at #FortSumter itself, and other defense positions. Cleared, Smalls sailed into the open seas. Once outside of Confederate waters, he had his crew raise a white flag and surrendered his ship to the blockading Union fleet. In fewer than four hours, Robert Smalls had done something unimaginable: In the midst of the Civil War, this #black male slave had commandeered a heavily armed Confederate #ship and delivered its 17 black passengers (nine men, five women and three children) from slavery to #freedom . #charlestonsc
Having a Blast and making Memories. @Fort Sumter #fortsumter #vacation #civilwar
Day 3 Went to Fort Sumter and the City Market where we found some gelato that looks cool until it starts to melt 😶 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #charleston #city #market #citymarket #fortsumter #civilwar #monument #southcarolina #gelato #dessert
Much of my life has been spent studying the #americancivilwar and playing #fortsumter by @gmtgames reminds me of my love of it. Fort sumter is a 20 minute (!!) Card driven game by #markherman that is reminiscent of #13days by jolly roger games. In true gmt style, the cards are deeply historical and multi-purposed. A change for us from the usual heavy gmt stuff, and quite enjoyable. #bgg #boardgames #boardgamer #boardnotbored #boardgameaddict #boardgamenight #boardgamelife #boardgamelibrarian #boardgamegeek #boardgamegroup #boardgamegirl #geek #geekygirl #geekgirl #instagames #instagamer #boardgamesofinstagram #brettspiel #juegodemesa #strategygame #analoggame #analoggamer #tabletopgamer #games #boardgame

If you squint you can spot Fort Sumter along the horizon. This was the site of the first Civil War engagement on April 12, 1861 and it’s a huge part of Charleston’s history. We didn’t have time to take the ferry out there during this trip, but we definitely recommend venturing out there for a tour or just to check it out! We’ll certainly be back... ⛴ . . . . . . . . . . . . #travelbug #womenwhoexplore #dametraveler #travel #wetravelgirls #travellingthroughtheworld #womentravel #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #wonderlust #wanderlust #letsgo #instatravel #travelgram #worldplaces #travelphotography #tourist #getaway #trip #galaway #charleston #southcarolina #southernbells #cnntravel #palmtrees #cnbctravel #portofcharleston #fortsumter
