A Brief Foray to the Birthplace of the Rebellion

10 10 2007

 

I apologize for the lack of posts over the past few days.  I have once more ventured into the heart of Secessia –Charleston, SC – and again emerged unscathed.  While in the Holy City, I had a little time to CW sightsee.  We sailed around Castle Pinckney, where Bull Run POWs were briefly held, and drove over to where they were transferred, the Old City Jail.  We also took the ferry over to Ft. Sumter.  We didn’t have time to see much since we were only in town for three days, but we had some quality R&R on my brother’s boat.  I’ll post some photos later.

In the meantime, Brian Downey called me out.  Tantalizing stuff…I’ll have to dig into it.  But right now I’m swamped with my real job, in addition to family stuff and a couple of other CW projects I’m working on.  I’ll try to make regular posts despite all that.

Harry was thinking of you when I was out on the water in Charleston last week. Got to see Castle Pinckney as we went by on the Harbor Cruise. Was interesting to see everything from the water view. Kept thinking what it must have been like to be on the David or the New Ironsides when they fought . Also interesting to see the opening of the Harbor and realize why it could be blockaded . It isn’t that wide .
I got to see the Hunley again while in Charleston and saw the Monitor turret on the way down from Richmond to Charleston.
Never enough time.
