War on James Island with Doug Bostick

September 13 @ 8:45 AM - 12:00 PM

This is a spanking new tour!  Don’t confuse this trip with ‘War on the Islands’ which has proven to be so immensely popular.  We’re running that for a third time on October 5th as Trip #21.  Historian, author, and raconteur Doug Bostick writes: James Island was known as the ‘Jewel of the Sea Islands’ in the 18th & 19th centuries. Find out why on this fascinating bus tour. Surprisingly, the island still boasts a number of historic assets and locations. Discover a lost James Island and learn the stories of Porgy, the lost gold, the shell ring that was used to build St. Michael’s Church, the first shot of the Civil War, ‘Burn Church,’ the Revolutionary Siege of Charles Towne, the house that crossed the harbor, ‘heaven on earth,’ Charles Lindbergh, Walter Hagen and his purple knickers and yellow roadster, and Sea Island cotton, to only name a few!
