The Liberty flag was designed, by commission, in 1775 by ColonelWilliam Moultrie, to prepare for war with Great Britain.
It was flown by his troops in the successful defense ofSullivan's Islandagainst theBritishfleet in June 1776.
Fighting back stridently during aten-hour bombardment and siege, Moultrie's forces (primarily the2nd South Carolina Regiment) eventually led the British to withdraw entirely, savingCharleston.
During the battle, the flag was actually shot away, but SergeantWilliam Jasperran out in the open and hoisted it again, rallying the troops until a new stand could be provided. The story of this dramatic event, along with the pivotal role of the battle itself, earned the flag a place in the hearts of the people of South Carolina,as well as cementing it as a symbol of liberty in the South, and the new nation in general.
