Special James Island Civil War Tour

Friday, May 3, 2019

A six hour tour taking guests through the Civil War History of James Island, from the opening shots of the Civil War at Fort Johnson through the battles and skirmishes that kept Charleston as an open port throughout the War.

The tour is approximately six hours in length beginning at your hotel in an air conditioned van. Our first stop is Fort Johnson from where the First Shot of the Civil War was fired. Our next stop is the McLeod Plantation, the only remaining plantation on James Island utilized throughout the War; slave cabins, the big house and other outbuildings remain. Next we take a walk to Battery Pringle Tyne located in the Charleston Museum’s Dill Sanctuary. We proceed to the Secessionville battlefield and thence to Sol Legare Island for a presentation by reenactors of the famed 54th Massachusetts regiment made famous in the movie Glory while enjoying a true Gullah luncheon. A moderate amount of walking will be required (some small incline; dirt paths) so good walking shoes are recommended.

($135.00/person)
