So many amazing Charleston Civil War stories have faded over time. Most people don t know of the elite 1860 Association that conspired to push South Carolina toward secession. Or about the Stone Fleet of old whaling ships sunk in Charleston Harbor in an attempt to choke out Confederate blockade runners. The Swamp Angel, "Greek fire" and heroism on both sides were common knowledge that faded in the memories of previous generations. The philanthropic deeds of Amarinthia Yates Snowden, William Richard Catheart's telegraphing tongue, the brazen blockade runner Tom Lockwood and dozens of other forgotten footnotes appear in this volume for a new audience to enjoy.
