More on the War
Charleston has as much Revolutionary War history as it does Civil War history, a fact often lost on visitors. The first major victory for the Patriots occurred in Charles Town and the longest siege of any city during the war also took place here. Efforts are currently underway to have markers describing the siege lines at Marion Square, and I have written a guide book chronicling this exciting era in history. (The book was written in a format that enables the reader to walk along specified routes in the city, but it can also be read without venturing out on foot.) It is available at local stores or through my website, www.charlestonguidebooks.com .
