AAA Editor Notes
The Battery is at 1 E. Battery St. on Battery Point at the waterfront. The East, or High Battery, faces the Cooper River and Charleston Harbor, where some of the settlement's earliest fortifications were. White Point Garden, planted with palmettos and live oaks, contains cannons, war relics and a monument to the defenders of Fort Moultrie and Fort Sumter. Many walking, motorized and carriage tours include The Battery on their itineraries.
