WHY IS CHARLESTON SO HAUNTED?
Charleston is the largest city in the state of South Carolina, and it's a wonder that the town survived its turbulent early years. Founded in 1670 as Charles Town after King Charles II, it wasn't incorporated as Charleston until 1783. Charleston went down in history as a major slave-trading port; however, in 2018, officials formally apologized for its involvement after CNN gave it a bad rap.
Tragedy and turmoil struck the port city right off the bat with a smallpox epidemic in 1698, followed by a devastating earthquake in 1699 that caused a fire that destroyed a third of the town. And then along came malaria and yellow fever, the latter causing 6-7 outbreaks through the 18th century, developing the reputation as the 13 colonies' least healthy location. It took until the 1950s, when pesticides were invented, which cut down on mosquito disease transmission, for Charleston to lose that reputation.
Pirates were attracted to Charleston, and in 1718 the notorious Blackbeard caused havoc for the town, invading and holding it captive for four days.
In its early days, Charleston relied on pine timber, pitch for ships, and tobacco. Soon cotton plantations were built, adding to the growing economy of the city.
The Civil War began and ended in Charleston, but it trudged on even after an earthquake in 1886 nearly destroyed it.
Disease, war, natural disasters, slavery, prejudices, and buccaneers all add to the history of Charleston, which today is a popular tourist spot.
