The Patriots of Charleston Walking Tour

Charleston was one of America's original wealthiest colonial cities, blending much sophistication and festivity with a chronic struggle against hostility, weather and disease.
There were more Revolutionary War battles fought in South Carolina than any other state in the South. All that took place here amounted to" a check" before the ultimate checkmate at Yorktown. Charleston's Henry Laurens was the only American ever held in the Tower of London during the Revolution, and then was exchanged for Lord Cornwallis after his surrender.
