Located on The Citadel Military College campus, home to the historic Lords of Discipline, this museum covers the history of The Military College of South Carolina and Corps of Cadets from its founding in 1842 to present day. Presented in chronological order, the exhibits include photographs, documents, cadet uniforms and arms. Citadel rings from 1895 to the present make an impressive display in the foyer, accompanied by photographs of Citadel men who lost their lives in war. Archive documents include letters, diaries, reports, photographs, films and videotapes. The entrance to the museum is located on the south side of the Daniel Library building. Admission is free.
If school is in, the place to be on Friday afternoon is The Citadel parade grounds. The cadets form and provide a free look at military pomp and circumstance rarely viewed by the public. In Charleston, it is known as THE place to be.
I live in Charleston now and I love everything about it. Of course it's going to have the "bad" parts and the "good" parts, but coming from the country, this is luxorious living. Although I attend Charleston Southern University, there's always something to do. Downtown Charleston, if its a nice day out, it would be a good idea to go on a carriage ride, and also in good weather, for a nice afternoon, going on a cruise of the local waters is awesome; however, it may be wise to take a light sweater in case (for both ideas) because the sun will hide quickly and the wind will blow slightly. Also downtown, "The Battery" is an great walk- way. It's just walking alongside of the beach, really romantic and calm, like hearing the water crash on the rocks and watching th moonlight. On King Street, it's really live, they have all kinds of restaurants and great sights. At night, a lot of the college students go there just to hang out, so generosity is what you will get! Good 'ol Charleston, South Carolina!!
