Quaker William Penn once described "Charles Town" as "a hotbed of piracy," full of wayward women "who frequented a tap room on The Bay and infected a goodly number of the militia with the pox." Since the Carolina Colony was founded and named for Charles II, the Merry Monarch, it's no surprise that Charlestonians have always had a flair for flouting the rules. In the 18th century, Bostonian Josiah Quincy complained that Charlestonians, "are devoted to debauchery and probably carry it to a greater length than any other people." In Storied & Scandalous Charleston, storyteller Leigh Jones Handal weaves tales of piracy, rebellion, ancient codes of honor, and first-hand accounts of the madness that ensued as the city fell first to the British in 1780 and then to the Union in 1865. Meet some of the foremost female criminals of the day-lady pirate Anne Bonny and highwaywoman Livinia Fisher. And learn how centuries of war, natural disasters, bankruptcy, and chaos shaped modern Charleston and the Carolina Low Country.
