War on James Island with Doug Bostick
February 27 @ 8:45 AM - 12:00 PM
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 wonderful 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, and ‘heaven on earth.’ Not to mention how Charles Lindbergh and Walter Hagen’s purple knickers and yellow roadster figure in as well! Our wonderful guide, historian and raconteur, Doug Bostick, will weave a spell-binding and thoroughly informative narrative. This trip is not a sequel to our ‘War on the Islands’ tour, but a gem in and of itself. Participants must be able to board the bus.
