    1. The marshlands were the reason the area was populated. King Charles II, your guy, gave land to a few Barbados planters to grow sugar cane and rice. Rice grew and finally huge rice plantations formed. Slaves were imported by the thousands. By the mid 1800s Charleston was the wealthiest city in the US. Rice plantations did it.

      A civil came, things were burned, and the marshes were not cultivated any longer. That cemetery is from 1800s and many southern civil war units are buried in the old sections by the marsh. It is actually famous for its old swamp look.

      Now we have tourism to see all this, so back where it started 😂
