I seem to remember Donald telling me about this book sometime ago and I put it in my mind as something I would need to get later. It has been so long, now I don’t know if this is the book or if it was something similar.

At a mere $9.62 at Sam’s Club, I figured I could take the plunge, even if it was the wrong book.



The book is not massive, just 152 pages without notes but so far it has been interesting. Flipping through the book I came to a picture of a house I immediately recognized, so perhaps my initial “glee” is like that of a fan of a rock star at a concert when his town is mentioned, “Good Evening Savannah, I mean Charleston.” But the pictures are important, they underline what the city went through and also shows how even as historic as Charleston prides itself in being, it has changed over the years.

Although the pictures are good, the same cannot be said of the maps, which seem very mundane.

With ten years since its first publication, I also have to wonder, what more could be out there for future editions. Although I have not read the full book, there just seems that there has to be more to the story. Perhaps I am looking for something more personal though? I’ll let you know when I am done with the book.

You might find this interesting also. Check out http://www.petcds.com/Hunle... “The H.L. Hunley Era” – Music, songs and atmosphere of the South during the Civil War. Very authentic and true to history – musically speaking. The story of the CSS Hunley and Charleston harbor told in music

Just about all of the things you assert is supprisingly legitimate and that makes me
wonder why I hadn't looked at this in this light before. This piece truly
did turn the light on for me personally as far
as this specific subject matter goes. Nonetheless at
this time there is one particular position I
am not really too comfy with so whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual central
theme of the issue, allow me see what the rest of your readers
have to say.Well done.

Hi, Neat post. There's an issue together with your web site in web explorer, could check this?
IE still is the market chief and a large section of other folks will omit your
wonderful writing because of this problem.
