We do a Civil War themed trip every year, and want to go to Charleston for the 150th anniversary of the firing on Ft. Sumter.  In previous years, we have done Gettysburg and Harper's Ferry/Antietam.

My concern is whether there will be enough going on in Charleston in April 2011 to make for a rich Civil War experience.  I've been told that the city of Charleston plans to do little to commemorate one of the most important events in American history.  Besides the ferry ride out to Ft.  Sumter, what is there to do in Charleston that is Civil War related that can provide us with 3 days of activity? 

Is anyone else going down in April for this historic event?  Will there be activites planned?  If anyone can provide a Civil War related itinerary for us, it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance for your help.
