If you're looking for some remnants of the Revolutionary War in Charleston, they're pretty much everywhere. But the Charleston Mercury has written up a piece to give you a hand in pointing them out.
A few of the highlights of the Mercury's Revolutionary War walking tour include the Gen. Moultrie statue at White Point Gardens, the Heyward-Washington House on Church Street, the George Washinton Statue at Washington Square, the Powder Magazine, the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, and several other spots that even locals might not know about.
We definitely recommend checking it out, whether you're a local or a visitor, and getting in touch with a little bit of Charleston history.
And if you're looking for more Revolutionary War-era stuff, the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has a comprehensive listing of area sites and attractions for you to look through, including forts, museums, homes, and more.
