1670 F1789

THE COLONIAL PERIOD 1670 F 1789

In 1670, settlers from Bermuda and Barbados navigated the Ashley River and established the first settlement of the Carolina colony on the marshy west bank at Albemarle Point. In honor of King Charles II of England, the newly founded colony was named Charles Towne. As the population of Charles Towne grew, an urban development plan - the Grand Modell - established an orderly grid of streets and a central public square for a new peninsular location at the confluence of the Ashley and Cooper rivers known as Oyster Point. The seat of government officially moved to the new site in 1680. Construction of the walled fortifications surrounding the town began in 1694 giving rise to the moniker, walled city. A wealthy and thriving seaport Charles Towne became Charlestown in 1719 with the advent of royal rule, and finally, Charleston when the city incorporated in 1783 at the end of the Revolutionary War. The philosophy of Charles Towne, inspired by John Locke, centered on religious tolerance, which brought French Huguenots, Baptists, Congregationalists, and Presbyterians to the new colony. St. Philip’s was the first congregation formed in the settlement in 1680 becoming the center of Anglican activity. The Circular Church was established in 1681, the French Huguenot Church was established in 1687, and the Jewish congregation of Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim was founded in 1749. It is because of this religious diversity that Charleston became known as The Holy City. Charleston played an important role in the American Revolution. The Battle of Sullivan’s Island, June 28, 1776, saw American forces led by Gen. William Moultrie successfully repel a British naval and army attempt to take the city. Four years later a second British land and sea campaign surrounded the city during the six-week-long Siege of Charleston, the longest of the Revolutionary War. The siege ended on May 12, 1780, when the outnumbered and poorly supplied American forces led by Gen. Benjamin Lincoln surrendered to British Gen. Sir Henry Clinton. In 1788 the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon hosted South Carolina’s leaders as they debated and voted in favor of the U. S. Constitution. The Old Exchange is one of only four buildings still in existence where the U.S. Constitution was originally ratified.

1789 F1861

THE ANTEBELLUM PERIOD 1789 F 1861

Charleston saw tremendous growth during the Antebellum Period, inspiring a historic weeklong visit from President George Washington in 1791. The invention of the cotton gin in 1793 revolutionized cotton production and brought much prosperity to the area. Agriculture and business flourished culminating in elaborate hotel openings including The Planters Hotel, which began welcoming visitors and locals at its Church Street location. The Charleston City Market opened at its current location in 1804, and goods such as produce, seafood, and livestock were purchased on site. Charleston’s prosperity however, came at a heavy human cost, since much of its wealth was derived from the use of enslaved labor. Many of these men and women resisted this system. Denmark Vesey, a self-educated freedman, skilled carpenter, and a leader among African Americans living in Charleston, planned the most extensive slave revolt in U.S. history in 1822. As many as 9,000 slaves living in the city and on surrounding plantations were poised to attack arsenals, kill their enslavers, free the slaves and burn the city to the ground. Upon learning of the revolt Mayor James Hamilton organized a militia to halt the uprising. Some 130 people of color were arrested. Of these, 35, including Vesey, were hanged, and 32 were condemned to exile. The election of President Abraham Lincoln and the perceived threat to its economic system, which was founded upon slavery, caused South Carolina to secede from the Union on December 20, 1860. The following year, cadets from the South Carolina Military Academy (now The Citadel) fired shots against the American civilian steamship, Star of the West, which was attempting to get provisions to Fort Sumter. This was the first time shots were exchanged between North and South, and considered by some the opening salvo of the Civil War.

1861 F1886

THE CIVIL WAR AND ITS AFTERMATH 1861 F 1886

On April 12, 1861, the first shots of the Civil War were fired at Fort Sumter. The Union naval control of the sea meant the port city was under constant threat throughout the war. A fire, meanwhile, on December 11, 1861, burned over 500 acres of the city, including 575 homes and buildings. Union bombardment beginning in 1883 caused further damage to the city. Among the many battles the city saw, the Second Battle of Fort Wagner (aka Battery Wagner) in July of 1863, remains a landmark event. Here, the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, made up of African Americans, fought valiantly. Although not able to take and hold the fort, the regiment’s wide acclaim prompted the further enlistment of African American soldiers and a call for equal pay among African American free persons. In 1865, the Avery Normal Center was established as a learning hub for the local African American community. The College of Charleston today operates the Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture, an organization that collects, preserves, and shares the history and culture of Africans and their descendants in Charleston and the South Carolina Lowcountry. With the end of the Civil War many parts of Charleston were in shambles, and on August 31, 1886 it was an earthquake that caused further devastation. The earthquake, with an estimated magnitude of 7.3 on the Richter scale, shook Charleston and impacted the entire Southeast. The shock was felt as far away as Boston, MA, eastern Iowa, Bermuda, and Cuba. Sixty people died, and within the city limits, nearly all buildings sustained damage and many had to be torn down, resulting in an estimated $6 million in damage ($164.2 million by today’s standards). Roads out of the city were impassable, the railroad lines were destroyed and hundreds were left homeless.

RECONSTRUCTION AND PRESERVATION 1886 F 1941

The Civil War, 1861 fire, and great earthquake left Charleston in ruins. Slavery was abolished and plantation life was forever changed. But with defeat, came opportunity. By the late 1870s, industry was bringing Charleston and its people back to a renewed vitality. New jobs attracted new residents, and the region’s commerce improved, Charlestonians worked to restore and create community institutions. New industries emerged with the expansion of the railroad. Phosphate mining along with the cultivation of timber and cotton bolstered the economy. King Street came alive as the center of retail, and family-owned stores like Croghan’s Jewel Box, M. Dumas & Sons, Geo. C. Birlant & Co., and Berlin’s opened and are still in operation today. Charleston native Susan Pringle Frost, a proponent of historic preservation, became the first President of the Charleston Equal Suffrage League helping to found an organization that would become The Preservation Society of Charleston in 1920. Her efforts led Charleston to adopt the nation’s first historic zoning ordinance in 1931, and she worked to preserve many of the city’s beloved properties including the Joseph Manigault House and her childhood home, The Miles Brewton House. Her diligence paved the way for many of Charleston’s greatest architectural assets to remain intact today.

1941 F PRESENT

THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA, GROWTH AND PROSPERITY 1941 F PRESENT

Despite its successes, like other southern cities, Charleston imposed laws which mandated separate facilities for whites and blacks. In 1969, a new high school was needed on the Charleston peninsula to relieve overcrowding at the existing Burke High School. The new CA Brown High School opened to all races yet full desegregation of Charleston County schools was still to come. Charleston’s role in the civil rights movement came much earlier however. Federal Judge J. Waties Waring, an eighth-generation Charlestonian and outspoken leader in the Civil Rights Movement, handed down a dissenting opinion in Briggs v. Elliott (1952), a case that challenged school segregation in Summerton, SC. Soon after, Hon. Thurgood Marshall came to Charleston to argue on behalf of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The case was appealed to the Supreme Court and was folded under the case of Brown v. Board of Education (1954). Waring’s leadership and boldness helped to bring about the desegregation of schools across America, and his legacy lives on in Charleston today. In 2018, the Charleston City Council publicly apologized for its role in the slave trade, and also acknowledged the wrongs committed against African Americans as a result of slavery and Jim Crow laws. Contemporary Charleston saw an economic decline for several decades, but the area’s large military presence helped to keep the city afloat. In 1976, a new mayor, Honorable Joseph P. Riley, Jr. was elected and led economic and cultural growth in an unprecedented way. Industry continued to diversify into the 21st century, and the area saw an increase in hi-tech, advanced manufacturing and biomedical jobs. The arts flourished, and the community saw the creation of renowned events such as Spoleto Festival USA and the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. The Charleston region hosts facilities of some of the world’s most recognizable companies, including Boeing, Google, Mercedes-Benz Vans and Volvo. It is also home to more than 600 tech companies employing more than 11,000 people, and is the No.1 midsized US metro for IT job growth according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

SULLIVAN’S ISLAND Traveling to Sullivan’s Island is a sea island introduction to Lowcountry history. Beautiful homes that were built nearly a century ago blend seamlessly with newer family residences. Narrow streets criss-cross the island while winding past historic sites such as Fort Moultrie, where pivotal battles were fought during both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Edgar Allen Poe penned his short story “The Gold Bug” while stationed at Ft. Moultrie. The Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse signals the entrance to Charleston Harbor, where pleasure boats and cargo ships glide into the channel from the Atlantic Ocean. After a day on the beach drop in at the local cantina for some tacos + tequila, or dine al fresco with the family on Middle Street. Sullivan’s Island promises that time spent here is time well remembered.

AFRICAN AMERICAN and GULLAH CULTURE AFRICANAMERICANCHARLESTON.COM The story of Charleston can only be fully understood by exploring African and African-American influences on the area’s history, customs, and traditions. The contributions of the enslaved population extend to every facet of colonial and antebellum life, both urban and rural, and are an integral part of contemporary Charleston. Many scholars argue that most African-Americans can trace their roots to Charleston due to the large percentage of enslaved Africans who entered this country through the port of Charleston. For more than 300 years, the Lowcountry has been profoundly influenced by the linguistic, artistic and culinary contributions of Africans and African-Americans. Charleston takes great pride in preserving and sharing this essential heritage and eagerly anticipates the opening of the International African American Museum in late 2021.

The SWEET

SPOT

Not surprisingly, the sport of golf also has a rich and storied history in Charleston that dates back to the Colonial period. Records show 432 balls and 96 golf clubs being shipped from the Scottish port of Leith to Charleston in 1743. In 1786 the South Carolina Golf Club was established in what is now downtown Charleston. The game was played on Harleston Green, which (if it still existed) would be located between Calhoun and Beaufain streets. Charleston’s modern golf tradition began with the infamous 1991 Ryder Cup, better known as the “War by the Shore” that was played on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. In the ensuing years the Charleston area has hosted numerous international tournaments including the 2012 PGA Championship and the 2013 US Women’s Amateur. This tradition grew even richer in 2019 when the US Women’s Open was held at the Country Club of Charleston and the PGA Championship returns to The Ocean Course in 2021! With 20+ challenging courses available for play it’s easy to make a little golf history of your own! If tennis is more your style, you’re in luck. Charleston has been named “Best Tennis Town” in the US, and the facilities found at Wild Dunes Resort, Kiawah Island Golf Resort, and Seabrook Island leave no doubt as to why. Equally impressive is the Family Circle Tennis Center on Daniel Island, home to the Volvo Car Open, the longest running professional women’s tennis tournament. Each April the Volvo Car Open features the best players in women’s tennis, and attracts over 90,000 fans during the 10 days of the tournament. G OL F
