A visit of Charming Charleston, one of my favorite walking cities. I started at the Charleston Visitors Center. Charleston's most famous citizen is Philip Simmons. He was a Blacksmith who created "The Gate". It is a welcome symbol to the city of Charleston. "THE GATE" is located right in front of the Visitors Center. See photo.
One of the most hallowed grounds in America is easily Fort Sumter just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. This Fort went down in history as the site of the first shot of the Civil War. Residents of Charleston report that the spirits of Confederate and Union soldiers roam the Fort as well as the town. Charleston is also the site where Blackbeard ran his vessel, Queen Anne's Revenge, aground. Residents insist that Blackbeard's head haunts the area to this day
