Description: 

Charleston is where Fort Sumter is located, and where the first shots of the Civil War were fired. Located on the Atlantic coast and an important shipping route, Charleston relied on ships captained by "blockade runners" during the war who sneaked through the Union naval blockade to bring goods to the Confederacy (244). Aunt Jenny calls these seamen "heroes in a way" (244).
