If you heard about Charleston, you know that it's seen as one of America's most historic cities. And that kind of reputation, you don't get by accident. When you visit the place, you can see right away that it goes back centuries. But, how much do you know about its past?

Every Mercury reader knows the story of The Old Man and the Sea. A fortunate few of
us got to know him, and his story is no fish tale. Harry Locke Johnson, Jr., known affectionately
by generations of locals as Captain Harry, was born in Charleston in 1929.
