The Civil War Remembered Plantation Life Spotlighted During Five-Year Sesquicentennial By Patra Taylor

T

he lingering impression of plantation life in the American South often evokes images of the opulent lifestyle enjoyed by ladies and gentlemen of a bygone era. Oaklined alleyways leading to magnificent estate homes and Old World gardens provide an introduction to any story about the gracious living, hospitality and elegance of plantation life in the antebellum South. But the story of the rise and fall of plantations is also one of social, economic and political change that ultimately altered the course of history in America. Not since the filming of “Gone With the Wind” in 1939 has the spotlight shown so brightly on Charleston’s treasured plantations. The sesquicentennial of the Civil War, which began this year, kicks-off a five-year remembrance and re-examination of the epic clash between the states, with four of the region’s plantations – Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens, Drayton

Hall, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, and Middleton Place – serving as centerpieces for activities and poignant educational experiences for visitors of all ages.

in the Carolinas. Ten years later, the community relocated to its current place on the peninsula overlooking the harbor, a natural deep-water port perfect for establishing trade. The wealth of Charleston in the 18th and 19th centuries was derived, in large part, from the plantation system until after the Civil War. By 1750, trade in a variety of goods, particularly rice and indigo, established Charleston as the fourth largest city in Colonial America and the wealthiest. Charleston Harbor, the shipping port for these goods, became the first and largest port to receive the fuel upon which the plantation system ran – slaves. The plantation system of that era functioned as a small, self-sufficient town. The owner’s mansion was

often flanked by a number of outbuildings such as the overseer’s house, slave quarters, summer kitchen, smokehouse, carriage houses and groom’s quarters. The stable yard included workshops for the potter, blacksmith, weaver and carpenter. While the wealthy planters enjoyed the finest of everything, slaves raised crops, tended livestock and made nails, barrels, cloth and carriages. Touring any of Charleston’s major plantations today offers visitors an opportunity to experience plantation life during the 18th and 19th centuries. Plantations offer a realistic picture of society as a whole, including the lives of slaves, trades people, merchants, women and children. Although that society collapsed with the abolition of slavery, the plantation system’s place in history is marked by the remaining architecture and by the stories of the people who once lived there. october-december 2011 travelerofcharleston.com

Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens Built in the early 1700s, Boone Hall Plantation is known as America’s most photographed plantation. It was originally part of a plantation that covered more than 17,000 acres. Huge moss-draped Spanish oaks line the half-mile entrance to the plantation. The original estate house, cotton gin, slave cabins, smokehouse and formal gardens were built with brick and tile made on the plantation. Today, many of these buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Many varieties of old roses, some dating from the 16th century, complement camellias and azaleas in the formal gardens. To this day, Boone Hall continues as a working plantation, producing various agricultural products. Strawberries, tomatoes and pumpkins have replaced cotton, once the primary crop of the plantation.

Drayton Hall Completed in 1742 by Royal Judge John Drayton, this 125-acre plantation stands majestically along the Ashley River. The plantation house is one of the oldest and finest examples of Georgian-Palladian architecture in America. Through seven generations of Drayton ownership, this National Historic Landmark has remained in nearly original condition and is the

only Ashley River plantation house to survive the Civil War. Its unique state of preservation and rich, handcrafted details offer visitors a rare glimpse of a bygone era. Drayton Hall stands as an amazing time capsule, telling the story of a plantation and community spanning over 250 years. With its extraordinary architecture, scenic landscaped walks and serene river views, Drayton Hall evokes a sense of timelessness and continuity, adding to the excitement of discovering a true gem in historic architecture.

Magnolia Plantation and Its Gardens Magnolia Plantation, described as the “South’s most complete plantation Experience,” was built in 1676. Over three centuries later, it stands as a centerpiece of Ashley River history, having played important roles in the early days of settlement, the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, stately Magnolia Plantation has what is considered by many experts to be “the most beautiful gardens in the world,” offering the maximum color possible during every season. Travel expert Charles Kuralt, in his best-selling book, “Charles Kuralt’s America,” once described the plantation as “my greatest Charleston pleasure.”

Almost every aspect of plantation life can be seen at Magnolia Plantation. Visitors can also enjoy America’s unique major garden and wildlife preserve, the Audubon Swamp Garden at Magnolia Plantation. A separate attraction, the garden is hailed as the “must see” vacation experience in the Charleston area.

The wealth of Charleston in the 18th and 19th centuries was derived, in large part, from the plantation system until after the Civil War.

Middleton Place On the banks of the Ashley River is a carefully preserved 18th-century plantation that has survived the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and an earthquake. It was the home of Henry Middleton, president of the First

Continental Congress; his son Arthur, a signer of the Declaration of Independence; his grandson Henry, governor of South Carolina and an American Ambassador to Russia; and his great-grandson William, a signer of the Ordinance of Secession. Today, Middleton Place, a National Historic Landmark, features America’s oldest landscaped gardens. Originally created in 1741 by Henry Middleton, the gardens reflect the grand classic style that was in vogue in Europe and England in the early 18th century. The house, built in 1755 as a gentlemen’s guest wing, became the family residence after the plantation was burned during the Civil War. The plantation stable yards offer a rare glimpse into the rice and cotton eras in the American South.

Walk the Haunted Streets of Charleston! C

By George Olney

harleston bids fair to be the most haunted city in the United States. That’s a highly believable claim when standing in a graveyard in the black of night listening to tour guide David Hinson give eloquent justice to the macabre stories of the dying little girl’s black dog or the two best friends and the stillborn baby. That’s when you realize that “openly transparent” may be a good term for whoever - or whatever - is standing next to you.

If unquiet spirits in the dark of night aren’t quite your thing, Bulldog Tours also offers a stroll through Charleston’s steamy history, the 30 or 40 bordellos that made it that way and the assorted less-than upright shenanigans of the upright citizens of the time. That walking tour is most definitely R-rated.

Bulldog Tours of Charleston will happily roam back 300 hundred spooky years or so with you on a dark Charleston night with a variety of tours that will try your nerve. They offer tours of the city’s oldest church graveyards the city dungeon of the 1700s, and a building straight out of a Gothic horror tale - the old city jail. If you don’t manage to meet up with any of the “regular” residents during your tour, the well-trained and knowledgeable guide will still let you know all the eerie details of how certain spirits came to be uneasy and very permanent residents of the spot where you might be standing.

Reservations are highly recommended.

TIDE CHARTS

Tide Charts October – December 2011

Tide predictions provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) at the Custom Wharf House in Charleston Harbor.

Charleston and most other coastal areas experience two high and two low tides per day. Tides are caused by the gravitational effect of the moon. Why is knowing the tides helpful? If a day of fishing is planned, doing so when the tides are changing will normally prove to be when the catching is best. When planning a trip to the beach, it’s also nice to know whether the tides are in or out. The waves will naturally be larger on an incoming tide.
