City of Ruin: Charleston at War 1860-1865
City of Ruin began as a 20-part serial that ran in the pages of The Post and Courier from December 2010 to April 2011 by historian, author and columnist Brian Hicks. Hicks expanded the series, incorporating additional stories and the perspectives of people on both sides as the Holy City became ground zero for war. The book details the military actions around the city and how the conflict affected life in Charleston for residents and shopkeepers, as well as the city's sizeable population of slaves and freedmen.
