Civil War Charleston

December 13-15, 2019

A BGES Civil War Field University Program

Charleston is one of the country’s most consequential cities. Birthplace of rebellion, citadel of resistance, pathos of defeat–experience the gentility of the southern society. Learn that here it is not only permissible but desirable to be an SOB resident. Stroll her streets, visit some of her greatest homes, experience the electricity of a town aflame with political passion, stop by a young man’s military college, and explore the tension of an isolated and starving garrison on an isolated island in the center of the harbor. Walk the hallowed grounds of that fort and the forts that subdued her, and then learn the story of the first successful submarine attack and its tragic aftermath. Finally, share a quiet moment of reflection with many great figures of Southern society in Magnolia Cemetery. This is a great program to end the year.
