The National Park Service plans to map and review Civil War battlefields in the Charleston area, where the first shots of the war were fired in 1861.

It's been decades since the battlefields have been studied, The Post and Courier of Charleston reported. The park service, interested in what preservation efforts are still possible, says those maps were inadequate and left out parts of the battles.

The agency is providing $95,000 in American Battlefield Protection Program research grants to South Carolina.

The South Carolina Battleground Preservation Trust will use $72,000 to study nine Charleston-area battlegrounds including three fights at Fort Sumter; battles in Charleston Harbor, the attacks on Fort Wagner, the Battle of Secessionville, the Battle of Simmon's Bluff and the Battle at Grimball's Landing.

The pine planks to make the Swamp Angel battery are still there. I don't know if the site is worth preserving. Weather can overwhelm anything man makes.
