This is a map from the Aiken-Rhett Family Papers in the Charleston Museum that belonged to Harriet Aiken. Henrietta’s music confirms this route because she purchased music in some of these cities. Harriet’s diary also lets us know they went to these places, in this order.

Harriet mentions attending Meyerbeer’s Le Prophête.
