Fort Moultrie was originally established before the American Revolutionary War to protect the port city of Charleston, South Carolina. It successfully stood an attack by British naval forces during that war owing in large part to its new construction from soft palmetto logs. Cannon ball fire was absorbed by the soft wood instead of being shattered by it. The Fort also played a pivotal role during the American Civil War.

A total of fifty-six new strikes will have been created under the America the Beautiful Quarters Program before it is completed in 2021. These Fort Moultrie strikes mark the thirty-fifth for the program.
