Charleston Ghosts

Front Cover
Univ of South Carolina Press, 1963 - History - 105 pages
Charleston, South Carolina, famous for its magnolia and azalea gardens, its "Battery," and its key role in early American history, has, naturally enough, it share of ghosts. They stalk the halls of town houses once famous for gracious living and romance; they inhabit lonely stretches of moss-draped road and deserted gardens on the sites of old plantations outside the city.

About the author (1963)

The late Margaret Rhett Martin attended the Misses Sass School for Girls in Charleston and later continued her education at Converse College and at the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, D.C. She had a remarkably keen eye for the dramatic situation, and her lifelong fascination with South Carolina history enabled her to focus her talents in the writing of Charleston Ghosts.
