Take an uncensored look at Charleston’s true history — a history full of brothels, prostitutes, corruption, crime, scandal, and sordid affairs. While pastel-colored homes, sunshine, and southern hospitality reign supreme in the city, it’s not always champagne and mimosas. From hundreds of years ago to present day, Charleston has been a place where high society life is shadowed by scandals, temptations, and unruly behavior. In the underbelly of Charleston lay an unholy city indeed.
