Author Chat: The Civil War in the South Carolina Lowcountry – How a Confederate Artillery and a Black Union Regiment Defined the Meaning of War

Date: Thursday, April 15, 2021

Time: 2:00 PM

Author: Ron Roth

Description: Some of the most dramatic and consequential events of the Civil War era took place in the South Carolina lowcountry between Charleston and Savannah. From fire-eater Robert Barnwell Rhett’s inflammatory 1844 speech calling for secession under an ancient oak in Bluffton; to the last, desperate attempts by confederate forces to halt Sherman’s army juggernaut as it makes its way through South Carolina, this book paints a compelling portrait of a region torn by war.
