This is a view down Meeting Street after the Charleston Fire of 1861. And the second picture is of the only house on Logan Street to survive the flames--probably because of its "tabby" construction. The Grenville house across the street was not so fortunate.
This is the house on Legare Street that I used as a model for the fictional Dubois Mansion. It was Susan's family home.
And on the right is the guest wing of the Middlteon Place house. The rest of the house was burned at the end of the war.
This is an actual photo of the Battle of Port Royal Sound that Eddie and his father witnessed in the excerpt you will be reading tomorrow. The ships all are part of the 88-vessel fleet that attacked the Low Country in November 1861.
And this one shows General Sherman and his officers organizing the March through Georgia that would later bring them right through the Grenville Farm.
