Morris Island is featured today in Parade Magazine's Intelligence Report, too! An excerpt from Parade's "Intelligence Report": "America has lost more than 20% of its Civil War sites due to development and sprawl. On Tuesday, the Civil War Preservation Trust will unveil a report on the most endangered battlefields...... Topping the list are two famous sites: Morris Island, in South Carolina, best known as the place where the 54th Massachusetts Regiment, comprised of African-Americans, made its valiant charge against Fort Wagner, immortalized in the 1989 film Glory. A planned housing development could destroy what remains of Fort Wagner, and affect Fort Sumter, too".
