fripp island real estate: Palmetto State? Where did that come from? - 02/17/09 07:34 AM
Fort Moultrie was the first fort, built of palmetto logs.  The fort inspired the South Carolina state flag and the nickname Palmetto State. The fort was attacked by the British on June 28, 1776. The soft palmetto logs did not crack under bombardment - it absorbed the shots from the warships. Also, there were stories that cannon balls actually bounced off the walls! The fort is named for William Moultrie who was the commander in the battle.
Now you know an interesting fact of how South Carolina, The Palmetto State got its name!
