Understanding linkages between past and present is essential to understanding our lives today. History gives us the perspective to learn from past mistakes, emulate those things that are deserving of such, and take a long view of the complex cultures, traditions, laws and religious thought that have guided humanity throughout civilization.

On this blog, I unwittingly attempt the impossible: to catalog Charleston's history, focusing on some of its lesser known aspects while pointing you to other sources that are more expansive than logistics allow to be included here. 

This page will always be evolving, though in no particular order other than my interest of the moment. Your input is welcomed.
