June 10th to 13th, 2009 - Charleston NC

Charleston, NC is a great city to visit for Civil War history, architecture and WWII Naval history buffs. Unfortunately we had a incident with one of our memory cards and lost (or misfiled) the pictures of the WWII naval ships in the floating museum.

Fort Sumter is on an island just inside the harbor. This is where the first shot of the USA Civil War was fired. We sailed by, but did not go to the fort. We did attend the museum on the mainland and it was very good.

Copy of the first submarine to sink a ship. It did not survive the encounter.

Four historical buildings share the same corner. A church, Federal Building, Municipal Hall and Courts. The Courts building was the original colonial office.

We toured several beautiful mansions. This was my favorite.
