Surviving resources found within the Lowcountry's often-overgrown thickets embrace the essence of the New World's wealthiest 18th century agricultural society, as well as the American Revolution and Civil War. Here one witnesses the creation, pre-eminence and decline of the Southern plantation society and is drawn into the lives of the people and events that shaped our nation's history.
