Then work our way around to Tradd St. - stopping at the Sword Gates and the home of Col. John Stewart while discussing English history, the founding of the colony, architecture, epidemics, disasters, two wars and more.
Cross Meeting St. into the original walled city, where we discuss Pres. Washington’s visit and Charleston “firsts”.
Ending on Bay St to see the city planned by the Lord’s Proprietors, discussing why it was built and why it came down.
On to the High Battery to discuss the start of two wars in our harbor, the last Royal Govenor and the beginning and end of the Civil War.
