History tells us early Charlestonians had a healthy relationship with the Pirates. This is a lie. Early Charlestonians didn't have a healthy relationship with the pirates! Early Charlestonians were the Pirates! This is an exploration of Charleston and a discussion and discovery of piracy's impact on the birth of the city and our nation. We start our history trip at Oyster Point and make our way through the old fortress into the heart of the city marketplace. Along the way, we will walk the streets and alleys that the Pirates of America roamed. We'll hear the story of the greatest American Pirate no-one has ever heard of and the women who show up in history manning the helms of pirate fleets. Along with them, we'll hear the story of the Pirate who's actions had a direct impact on the birth of America. Together, they are the early Charlestonian pirates, and here is where they gave birth to America.
