Charleston Terrors: The Ghosts of Pirates and Patriots PastBook Now
A Past That Demands to Be Remembered
Did you know Charleston is considered to be one of the most haunted destinations in America?
Charleston is known for it charming Southern hospitality, but the history of the Holy City runs as deep and dark as the waters of the Cooper River beside it. Since its inception, Charleston has withstood both natural and man-made disasters, from fires and battles, to plagues and earthquakes. Devastating calamities leave a psychic imprint on the area, and the supernatural energy of Charleston is as much a part of its heritage as its architectural beauty and delicious seafood.
