      The battery is the walk along the Charleston water-line (near the very nicest homes), a mile across the water from it is Ft. Sumter. It was called the battery first in 1812 when it was covered with cannon by the Americans to keep out the British (who took Charleston in the battle of Fort Moultrie). I was born at a hospital on the battery and lived in the St. Phillips Rectory for the first quarter of my life.
