Though not technically in North Charleston , historic Magnolia Cemetery (70 Cunnington Ave., 843/722-8638, Sept.–May daily 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Jun.–Aug. daily 8 a.m.–6 p.m.) is on the way, in the area well north of the downtown tourist district called “The Neck.”
This historic burial ground, while not the equal of Savannah’s Bonaventure , is still a stirring site for its natural beauty and ornate memorials as well as for its historic aspects.
Here are buried the crewmen who died aboard the CSS Hunley,  re-interred after their retrieval from Charleston Harbor. In all, over 2,000 Civil War dead are buried here, including five Confederate generals and 84 rebels who fell at Gettysburg and were moved here.
