 Why is Charleston called America’s Most Historic City?

Why has Charleston been named the #1 City in America by Conde Naste Traveler four years in a row?

Mark Jones’ fascinating new book will show you why! These 40 fast-paced chapters not only explore the odd and unusual, but also some of the most important events in American history. 

Did you know that Charleston:

  • had the first female editor of a newspaper?
  • organized the first independent government in the American colonies?
  • had the first American imprisoned in the Tower of London?
  • had the first passenger railroad in America?
  • fired the first shot of the War (Between The States)?
