I’m privileged to have a few days this week in Charleston, South Carolina, to attend the 21st annual meeting of the John Randolph Club. It’s great lectures, great conversation, and great food in one of America’s finest and most historic cities. The conference began Wednesday night, and I’ve already heard outstanding talks on the burgeoning literary scene in antebellum Charleston, the continuing relevance of John C. Calhoun’s writings, and the siege of Charleston during the war.
Also, the group did an extensive walking tour Thursday that covered much of the city. My own pictures aren’t ready to post yet, but here are some stock photos of sites we toured.
