Known as "the Cradle of Succession," Charleston and Fort Sumter are where it all began -- the deadliest of all American wars, more fatalities than all other American wars combined, WWII included! Site of the longest siege of the Western Hemisphere, Charleston was bombarded through 586 days. You'll see locations and hear the stories central to this stirring saga.

Of the approximately 13 million Africans who were enslaved and brought to the New World about half a million landed in North America. Of those, 200,000 (40%) first arrived in Charleston which had a majority African American population by 1709. Hear their story and how it forever changed the history of our nation.

Visits to museum houses and excursions to Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie, and lesser known fortifications available.
