Few places can connect people in the way that Charleston in South Carolina does. This is a place where the thread of history lies unbroken. From the first frontier footstep to the first shots fired of the Civil War, stories here are written in the sand of its beaches, in the walls of the grand mansions and churches. It’s a story cherished and passed down for generations by the people that live here.
