Below we present a leaf from the January 26, 1861 edition of Harper's Weekly. This leaf presents a view of Charleston, South Carolina just as the Civil War was about to begin.  The illustration includes images of Broad Street, the Mercury Office, the Custom House, Castle Pinckney, and Fort Moultrie. All these are of incredible historical importance. (A note to our viewers.  We acquired this original 140+ year old illustration for the purpose of digitally archiving it on this site.  If you would like to acquire the original leaf, it is available for $175.  Your purchase allows to acquire more original material to post on this site)
