1. Moat Feeder Canal Marker
Inscription. In wartime the moat was filled with water from the South Channel of the Savannah River. This feeder canal featured stop-lock gates which provided water control and access to small barges bringing supplies to the fort. When filled from this ditch, the moat formed an effective barrier to hinder the approach of infantry.
 
Erected by National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
