The Circular Congregational Church reflects the independent spirit of its founders. To tour the church and wander in its graveyard is to feel the presence of people who settled the colony of Charleston, amassed and lost fortunes, plotted the Revolution, framed the Constitution, formed and then split the Union, survived the Civil War and coped with its aftermath. With detailed research and a rare collection of vintage photographs, this book traces the history of one of the city's oldest congregations.
