During the 18th and 19th centuries, Charleston's diseases and life-threatening ailments severely hampered the local population and its economic growth. In fact, just staying alive during what was popularly referred to at the time as “the sickly season” (August through November) could be considered an accomplishment. For centuries, Charlestonians coped with a number of maladies, oftentimes attempting to prevent or even cure them. In closely examining The Charleston Museum's extensive medical and pharmaceutical collection along with Chief Curator Grahame Long, participants can see what struggles many locals endured, and what tactics they resorted to, in their quest to remain healthy.
