Patriots, Pistols and Petticoats

Patriots, Pistols and Petticoats vividly portrays the lively – at times bawdy – atmosphere in Charleston during the Revolutionary War era. This brawling port city – the fourth largest in Britain’s North American colonies and the largest in the South at the time of the Revolutionary War – boasted commerce, politics, cultural events, and entertainment as sophisticated as any found in America. Encompassing the city’s taverns and streets, the drawing rooms of its elite, its shipping trade, its agriculture, and its political rivalries, Walter Fraser’s thorough research, and revealing anecdotes offer an entertaining and informative history of this distinguished city and its role in the colonial fight for independence.
