Hem Branch Publishing, 2009 - Historic sites - 404 pages
Parker's Guide to the Revolutionary War in South Carolina is 415 pages of information with 620 maps, photos and illustrations, and action locations in all the counties in the state. Most people do not know that South Carolina had a "Boston Tea Party" of sorts on October 12, 1765 while the celebrated Boston Tea Party was on May 10, 1773. South Carolina forced the removal of British Stamps from Charleston and became a leader of the rebellion against British taxation. The account is on page 87 of Parker's Guide. Another fact that most people do not know is that on April 21, 1775, the British magazines in Charleston (Cochran's) and Mount Pleasant (Hobcaw) were broken into by Patriot South Carolinians only two days after the Battle of Lexington. All the arms, powder and shot were requisitioned for the Patriot cause from both magazines. The short time span between the Lexington and South Carolina actions did not allow South Carolinians to have received news of the action in Lexington, Massachusetts until weeks later. South Carolina was again in the forefront of the American Revolution. The account is on pages 74 and 107 of Parker's Guide. - Publisher.
