The History of Charles Town
Founded in 1670 under the original name of "Charles Town", in honor of King Charles II, it was incorporated as "Charleston" in 1783. Charleston is both the county seat of Charleston County and the largest city in the state of South Carolina.
Charleston was a major slave trading port in the 1700's and was responsible for processing almost half of the slaves brought to the U.S. Runaway slaves and slave rebellions were so common that the Security Act of 1739 was passed requiring all white men to carry weapons at all times. A strictly plantation economy based on slave labor, Charleston became one of the richest cities in the colonies.
Charleston played a role in both the start and finish of the Civil War: Fort Sumpter in Charleston Harbor was the site of the first full battle of the war and the war ended just a few months after Charleston fell into the hands of Union forces.
In the latter part of the 20th century, the greater Charleston area suffered billions of dollars in damage when Hurricane Hugo came ashore in 1989 and suffered further economic damage when in 1996 Naval Base Charleston was closed.
