Book Description University of South Carolina Press, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Second Edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Robert Rosen's A Short History of Charleston - a lively chronicle of the South's most renowned and charming city - has been hailed by critics, historians, and especially Charlestonians as authoritative, witty, and entertaining. Beginning with the founding of colonial Charles Town and ending more than three hundred years later, after Hurricane Hugo's rampage, the fast-paced narrative takes the reader on a journey from the Caribbean islands - home of the original settlers - to the great rice plantations of the Carolina Low Country. Packed with anecdotes and enlivened by passages from diaries and letters, A Short History of Charleston recounts in vivid detail the port city's important role in such signal events as the American Revolution, the Nullification controversy, secession and the Civil War.
