Broad Street Tours will be offering walking tours again this year.  Lee Ann Bain and Carol Ezell-Gilson will be your guides.  The daytime tours are two hours in length and cover about a mile distance.  

Participants will learn of personalities and events leading up to the Ordinance of Secession, signed in Charleston on December 20, 1860, effectively dissolving the Union. Charleston was the largest slave port in North America, its waterfront the location of numerous slave auctions. Visitors will gain understanding into the state’s economy and its determination (at the time) to preserve the institution of slavery. Fort Sumter provides backdrop to hear of the start of the War, the siege of Charleston (1863-1865), and the eventual fall of the city.

For more information on all tours check out http://broadstreetbiz.com/walking-tours/charleston-conference-2015/.  Tours are $20.00 per person and payment may be made with cash or check at tour time.  Reservations are required as tour groups are limited to 20 people.
