Edisto Island, 1861 to 2006 : Ruin, Recovery and Rebirth
by Charles Spencer




Overview -

This title from Charles Spencer recounts the history of Edisto Island from the Civil War to present day.


The Civil War hit Edisto Island hard.

But this phoenix was to rise from the ashes of war to become one of the premier destinations for fun and sun on the South Carolina coast. Charles Spencer, in his second volume of Edisto history, recounts the events of the Civil War, the struggles of Reconstruction, the effects of the new freedman class and the island's rebirth as a favorite vacation spot and modern community in the twentieth century. Each chapter offers an enjoyable excursion into the past and a detailed look at the remarkable history of Edisto.
