Old Charleston Originals by prolific local author Margaret Eastman revives stories from the Holy City's incredible past. Preserved within these pages are tales from the swashbuckling early settlers, tales of the exclusive events thrown by Jockey Club, and the rise and fall of the maritime empire of George Alfred Trenholm, considered the inspiration for the legendary blockade runner Rhett Butler. Discover what caused a near massacre in the state house, how two determined Charleston ladies stopped a bulldozer, why a plantation home to be floated down the Cooper River and many more stories from Charleston's past.
