If you ARE interested in the fact that the slave population out numbered residents 3 to 1 in Charleston, this is NOT your guide. Just like the city of Charleston (which was a major port), it seems the book doesn't really want to acknowledge its history. The individuals that built, tortured and were separated from their families deserve more than 2 paragraphs in this book. Pay your respects at the Old Slave Mart and read the newspaper articles carefully preserved to document the history of slavery in Charleston.
