Fulton was named for Robert Fulton, the famous inventor who experimented with a submarine boat in 1801 in France and built theClermont, a steamboat which sailed up the Hudson River in 1807. During the Revolutionary War, Milton traveled to Charleston, South Carolina, and New Bern, North Carolina before moving to Maryland with the official records of the state while Georgia was occupied by the English.
