Hey everyone! The kids and I took a detour on our trip up to NC and stopped in Charleston for 24 hours. We have been studying The Civil War, The Underground Railroad, and slavery since March in both Story of the World (we lingered on the chapter for weeks) and Five in a Row (Follow the Drinking Gourd and Who Owns the Sun?). I knew we wanted to do Fort Sumter so we pushed our June trip back to July in May when it was still closed so that we could be assured of it being mostly open. At the last minute, I found a tour called "From Slavery to Freedom", and the founder of The Slave Dwelling Project happened to be the tour guide the weekend we planned to be in town. I highly recommend this tour at Magnolia Plantation. All of the links are at the end of our pictures if you want to check any of it out. Here's a photo dump of our experience, and my vlog is linked at the end as well.
