A Day In Charleston
Hi, this is Civil War Sallie. This week I got to visit Charleston, SC. While there I visited the Aiken Rhett House. This is the former home of the Governor of South Carolina. The house was where Jefferson Davis stayed on his only visit to Charleston during the Civil War. After Jefferson Davis' visit General PGT Beauregard moved his headquarters to the house during the Civil War to keep it safe from the heavy Federal bombardment.
