Dr. Tom’s Drive to History

On May 2 the BCCC is proud to host a “Drive to History” where noted author, Dr. Tom Horton, will give two short talks. We will drive up to Quinby Bridge for the first one. This will touch on the history of the Revolutionary War battle between the British and the forces of Sumter, Moutrie and Lee.

We’ll then motor over to St.Thomas and St.Denis church, near Cainhoy, where Tom will talk about the 1876 fight between Hampton’s Red Shirts and rioting freedmen that occurred there.

St. Denis & St. Thomas Church

It’s just a short a drive from there over to the Cainhoy Cooking Depot for lunch, and they are expecting our crowd. Millie Horton will call ahead with a group count for them.

It will be a fascinating morning of driving the nice back roads and seeing firsthand some of South Carolina’s wonderful history topped off by a great lunch. Tom Horton is a gifted speaker and professor and a real joy to be around and you will not be disappointed, that’s a promise. If you love lowcountry history, this drive is not to be missed.

Anyone who is interested is welcome to join us, this is not limited to BCCC club members.

We will leave the Coleman Blvd garage at 9:00am Saturday morning, May 2.

We look forward to a very interesting event!
