    IN HISTORIC CHARLESTON CHARLESTON, first called Charles Town, named after Charles IX of France was settled by English colonists under William Sayle in 1670. The first settlement was on the west bank of the Ashley River and in 1680 the present site was occupied. It was granted by Charles II of England to a group of proprietors, chief among whom was Ashley Cooper, Earl of Shaftsbury. The two rivers between which Charleston lies were named after him. Colonists came from all parts of England, the Continent and the West Indies, among whom the French Huguenots have played an important part in the city's history. Have You ONE HOUR.. Then see: At the foot of King Street on Murray Boulevard and facing south one sees directly ahead James Island on which in 1704 was built Fort Johnson. In 1765 colonists captured this fort and defied the British, the first colonial outbreak. To the eastward is the channel to the Atlantic Ocean in the center of which on a shoal stands Fort Sumter, at which the first shot of the Civil War was fired. Named after Revolutionary general. S'till further eastward is Sullivan's Island, on which stood Fort Moultrie, built in 1776 and named after Col. William Moultrie. Here the colonists won the first complete American Victory of the Revolution when an attack of the British fleet was repulsed. During this engagement Sergeant Jasper leaped outside the fort and rescued the American flag which had been shot down. Edgar Allen Poe served here 1827-28. Nearer and a little to the north of east is Shute's Folly Island, on which stood Castle Pickney, a fort built 1797-1804.

PLACES OF INTEREST FOR A DAY'S TRIP To the Northeast: Leaving Charleston over the Cooper River Bridge, one can visit Georgetown (75 miles). Fair dirt roads. This is a quaint old seaport town, off the beaten track and having an atmosphere of its own. Some beautiful old houses. See there the Belle Isle Gardens. To the Northwest: There are two roads which can be taken to Summerville. One (22 miles) is all paved out Meeting Street and follow signs. Other route, a little longer over good clay roads passes Magnolia and Middleton Gardens. Cross Ashley River and follow signs. Summerville is beautifully situated among the pines. Near it is the ante-Revolutionary town, Dorchester. To the South: Leaving Charleston over the Coastal Highway (all paved) Beaufort lies 80 miles and Savannah 124 miles distant. Beaufort is a large seaport town dating from the sixteenth century. It contains some fine examples of Colonial houses. See there the old Episcopal Church and a few miles distant, ruins of Sheldon Church. Near here, also, is Parris Island, U. S. Marine base. Here is monument marking site of fort built 1562 by Jean Ribaut, who was sent by Coligny to establish Huguenot settlement. In 1565 the Spanish under Menendez de Aviles destroyed fort and killed defenders. Savannah is a charming city dating to 1733 and having many places of interest. It was founded by James Oglethorpe and here John Wesley soon established America's first Sunday School and James Whitefield founded the first orphanage, Bethesda, which still continues its work. The bloodiest battle of the Revolution where Pulaski and Sergeant Jasper were killed was fought at Savannah. From here sailed the first steamship to cross the Atlantic. The city contains many beautiful old churches and residences. It has many parks and monuments. Here should be seen Christ Church, Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, Thomas House, Meldrim House, Independent Presbyterian Church, Low House, Pink House, Oglethorpe Monument, etc. Within a few miles of the city are Bethesda, America's first orphanage; Wormsloe Gardens, historic plantation estate; Bona- venture, Commodore Tattnall's old home site, now a cemetery; The Hermitage, once exquisite colonial residence.
