Battle of Fort Sullivan

The British soon withdrew from the area and Lt. General Sir Henry Clinton sailed back to New York City. The British would not make another serious assault in the South until 1778 and would not attack Charleston again until May 1780. Meanwhile, Fort Sullivan would be renamed Fort Moultrie in honor of Colonel William Moultrie. In September, Maj. General Charles Lee would be recalled to help General George Washington with his campaign.
