Hi folks! Fall is here and the weather is getting nicer for outdoor events. Next weekend, Oct. 8 & 9 should be a great one at the Bennett Place where the largest surrender of the Southern armies took place. As part of the Sesquicentennial observance of the War for Southern Independence they will be hosting “The Road to Secession.”
I have been invited to be one of their historians for this event speaking on the 7th South Carolina as they prepared for and became engaged in the early part of the war as detailed in “The Boys of Diamond Hill.” I will be speaking at 3:30 on Saturday afternoon and 1:00 on Sunday afternoon. I hope to see you all there.
