A small town in southern Indiana, not too far north of Louisville. It used to be home to an ammunition plant that was actice in WWII.
It has rather crappy schools that are trying to improve themselves with the 1:1 Program, a program that distributes one Macbook to each student. They're beginning to make some progress, but they've got a long way to go. Their mascot is the Pirates.
Ignorant, Bible-thumping rednecks abound. Beware. Also, like the rest of Indiana, they're obsessed with their sports, especially basketball.
At least it's got some nice open land out in the sticks near town. Beware of trigger-happy people who enjoy shooting anything that moves in their yard, though.
Charlestown is trying to drag itself out of the depths. It's getting there, but it'll be a long haul.
