Some of Charleston's most stately antebellum residences are found along the city's beautiful waterfront promenade known as the Battery. Stretching along the lower shores of the Charleston peninsula, the Battery was named for a Civil War defense artillery battery at the site. From the rooftops and piazzas of these grand houses, Charlestonians watched the firing on Fort Sumter that began the Civil War in 1861 These residences have withstood nearly two centuries of artillery strikes, great hurricanes, fires, and military occupation to remain among the city's most beautiful monuments to its history. This tour gives access to the interiors of these private homes.
