FOOD FOR THOUGHT LUNCHEON LECTURE (IN PERSON)
Charleston, besides being a symbolic target for enemies of the 1780s and 1860s, was a fantastically wealthy one too. Thus, it seemed no church, business or private home was off limits to wartime looting. An exact tally of what and how much Charlestonians lost remains difficult to quantify. Most things are gone forever. Some, though, occasionally turn up centuries later–and in the unlikeliest of places. Join Grahame Long, Historic Charleston Foundation’s Director of Museums, for a look through Charleston’s lost and found.
A book signing of Long’s Stolen Charleston: The Spoils of War will follow the lecture.
