Good Reads about the American Revolution in SC

The Revolutionary War in South Carolina had an enduring impact and involved a great deal of fighting -- more so than in any other British colony. After reading Chapters 12 and 13 that discuss how the the American Revolution unfolded here in Beaufort District from Larry Rowland's A History of Beaufort County, South Carolina, vol. 1, 1514-1861, 975.799 ROW you may just want to learn more. We suggest:
