Without a doubt, this book is one of the best information sources on Charles Town in the 18th Century available. As a living history interpreter, I am constantly on the lookout for books which fill in minute details for my character. This book provided some of the best base information I've found to date on day to day life and events in the port city. I strongly urge anyone doing living history for characters in SC in this period to read and absorb this work. It's outstanding!
