Welcome to Charleston; “The Holy City,” “Palmetto City,” and “Da Chuck.” Charleston, South Carolina is a small city with a big heart. In 2011 Travel and Leisure Magazine named Charleston “America’s Most Friendly City.” It also named Charleston “America’s Sexiest City.” In both 2011 and 2012 Condé Nast Traveler 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards ranked Charleston the #1 US city. Charleston is known for its well-preserved historic buildings and its well-mannered people. It is also known for its rich and extensive history. Over the years many notable people have come out of this small city, including: comedians Stephen Colbert and Andy Dick; actor Will Patton; Hootie & the Blowfish lead singer Darius Rucker; NBA player Kwame Brown; La Bouche lead singer Melanie Thornton; and early American political figures Edward and John Rutledge, John C. Calhoun, James and Christopher Gadsden, Thomas Heyward, Jr., and Charles Cotesworth Pinckney.
In the mid-1600s Charles II’s entourage, known as the Lords Proprietors, were granted land in England’s American colonial territories. In 1670 they settled in present day South Carolina and founded Charles Towne. Several French, Scottish, Irish, and German people moved to the new colony in the late 1600s and helped the young city grow. Many Africans came to Charles Towne as well, but not by their own will. The port of Charles Towne was the main dropping-off point for captured Africans. It was a central city for American slave trade. By the time of the American Revolution the port of Charles Towne was the fourth largest port in the United States with over 11,000 people (over half being slaves). In addition to slave trade, Charles Towne’s early economy relied on deerskin, tea, silk and indigo trade.
In 1780, during the American Revolutionary War, British forces took control of the city after the Siege of Charles Towne. A few years later, the war ended, the British left, and the city changed its name to Charleston. Over the next 80 years, Charleston would be central to the Antebellum Movement that led to Southern Secession from the United States and the Civil War. In 1793, Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin and cotton became Charleston’s main crop. As a result, the city’s economy relied heavily on slavery. Charleston’s residents also began to champion state’s rights. In 1832 South Carolina’s government began to nullify federal tariffs. The US government sent federal troops to South Carolina to collect on these tariffs. Tensions between the North and South grew high and the US moved toward on the brink of war. In December of 1860 shots fired at Charleston Harbor’s Fort Sumter signaled the start of the American Civil War- a war that would last over 4 years and cost over 600,000 American lives.
After the war, Charleston’s economy was crippled. Many freed slaves moved North while others remained in South Carolina, working for near-slavery wages. Also, in 1886 a 7.3 magnitude earthquake nearly destroyed the entire city. Charleston slowly recovered over the next half-century and began to expand and diversify its economy. A large military presence in the city during WWII helped revitalize much of Charleston’s economy as well. Since the 1970s, the city has made a substantial effort to invest in its economic well-being and cultural heritage. It is now a major tourist destination.
