Well, I'm back from my trip to Charleston and Savannah, and I have to say that it was even better than I expected it to be!   Thanks to everyone who suggested things to do--I didn't have enough time to see everything--I wish I could have spent at least a week in each place rather than 3 days.

One funny thing is that I stood at the Battery in Charleston looking out at Ft. Sumter the evening that I first arrived.  It wasn't until 2 days later that I put 2-and-2 together and realized it was the anniversary!!  I was there both on the night of April 11th, and the next morning, too!

I also took a fantastic guided Civil War walk while I was there.  Also, while at Ft. Moultrie, I asked about Ft. Wagner and was told it's being "taken over" by the elements.  I found that interesting, and would like to find out more about that another time.  I'll probably go to just Charleston on my April vacation next year (for the week), and then to Savannah on my April vacation the next year.
