Ichnography of Charleston, South-Carolina : at the request of Adam Tunno, Esq., for the use of the Phoenix Fire-Company of London, taken from actual survey, 2d August 1788 / by Edmund Petrie.

The city of Charleston was founded in 1670, though at the time it was named Charles Towne. In 1783 - after the American Revolution - the town changed it's name to the current form. Rich in history, the city was one of the largest of colonial America, and played a major role in the American Civil War. The state was the first to secede following the election of Abraham Lincoln, and the first shots of the Civil War were fired at Union ships entering Charleston's harbor. Complete reference list below.
