I love history. Mostly Civil War era history and I had not heard of Charles Pinckney. It was a great look at this family. A very colorful family. Worth an hour of your time if you're nearby.

This place is a hidden gem. So much history involving this site. It makes you understand what Mount Pleasant and Charleston was all about durning the 1700's. There is no cost which makes it even better.
