Fort Sumter's original sally port (entrance) was located in front of you, in the center of the three-tiered gorge (rear) wall. The lightly armed gorge wall was vulnerable to attack by batteries on Morris Island, and as the war progressed Union shelling reduced it to ruins. At the base of the gore wall some flat stone pavers still exist from the esplanade that joined the sally port to the fort's 171-foot-long granite pier.
