Publisher's Description

It Happened in South Carolina is a collection of 30 action-packed stories from the long, colorful history of the Palmetto State. Stories range from its earliest colonial days through the American Revolution and the Civil War to the present day. This book features people and events that shaped not only South Carolina's future--but our country's personality as a whole. Meet Francis Marion, "Swamp Fox" of the Revolution, and Denmark Vesey, who daringly planned a slave revolt. Heroines like entrepreneur Eliza Pinckney and diarist Mary Chestnut are here, as well. Natural events like earthquakes and hurricanes are balanced by acts of individual courage, creativity and (sometimes comic) folly to show why South Carolina -- then and now -- is one of the most fascinating states in the Union.
