Walking Among the Dead – Charleston’s Urban Graveyard and Rural Cemeteries
After having spent the past two days within the oh-so-pleasant confines of the Francis Merion…. cemeteries! The “Walking Among the Dead” session was just what the doctor ordered. It started out with a quick overview of Charleston history and development as we drove to the Circular Congregational Church graveyard. By the time we got there, I had a sense of the various layers and rings of Charleston, where the old walls stood, and the patterns of growth. A “Cliffs Notes” version, but just right to wet my appetite for my next stay.
