SULLIVAN’S ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD) — A revolutionary war hero will be honored on Sullivan’s Island.
On Wednesday, June 28, a plaque will be unveiled commemorating the bravery of Sergeant William Jasper.
When a British warship shot down the flag at Fort Moultrie, Jasper raised it back up and held it under fire until a new pole arrived.
Now, we celebrate that battle as “Carolina Day.” Six days later, the U.S. declared independence from Great Britain.
The dedication ceremony begins at 4 p.m. outside Sullivan Island’s Town Hall.
