Charleston's Civil War Cemetery
Travelers visiting Charleston typically stick to the downtown area, but if you're interested in Civil War history, head up to "the Neck," the area between downtown and North Charleston, to Magnolia Cemetery. The marshside cemetery is where the most notable Charleston families are buried. It's also where the three crews of the Hunley, a Civil War submarine, are buried, and it offers great views of the Ravenel Bridge. You can visit the cemetery for free.
