Charleston, SC

We just got back from 4 days in the lovely city of Charleston, SC. We walked ALL over the place and saw some pretty cool sights. Plus, we learned about a lot of history (a Scott Moore must)!

Here we are in front of a statue of George Washington in a park.
Ft. Sumter, where the Confederate Soldiers first fired upon Union Soldiers to begin the Civil War.

Middleton Plantation, built by Henry Middleton whose son, Arthur Middleton was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Then, years later, Arthur's grandson Williams Middleton signed South Carolina's Ordinance of Secession.
While driving home from Charleston, Scott suddenly saw a sign for the Andrew Jackson State Park (Jackson is by far Scott's favorite President) and decided to make a detour. We explored the area and visited the museum. While in the museum Scott picked up a pamphlet for the birthplace of James K. Polk.
Off we were to see where the 11th president and a follower of Andrew Jackson's beliefs was born in North Carolina. Boy does Scott LOVE his American History.
We had a wonderful time and can't wait to visit again soon :)
