Charleston’s Dueling Legacy

November 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

For two centuries, Charlestonians dueled habitually, settling personal grievances with malice instead of mediation. Learn more about this dark side of “civilized” Charleston on Tuesday, November 14 at 7 pm at Daniel Island’s Church of the Holy Cross, 299 Seven Farms Drive.

Grahame Long, chief curator for the Charleston Museum, discusses the Dueling Legacy in Charleston. Dueling was an integral part of Charlestonians’ social lives. A gentleman’s duel was a crucial matter of taste and caste. A loss of life was not a high price for those who held personal honor and principle utmost to all other social ideals.
