Charleston Then and Now Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1670, the Carolina Colony crowned Charles' Town the capital city, and since then Charleston has enjoyed a colorful and turbulent history. Trade made this bustling seaport prosperous, and by the mid-eighteenth century, Charleston was the 4th largest city in the American Colonies. Though Charleston endured devastation in the Revolutionary and Civil wars, fires, hurricanes, and even earthquakes, it remains one of the most beautiful cities in the South. In this new Then and Now book, archival photographs are matched with modern images of Charleston. See historical monuments like Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie, elegant St. Michael's Episcopal Church, and genteel colonial mansions as they once were-and as they are today. Though much has changed, Charleston's beauty is eternal.
