South Carolina Charm

Photography Prints

If you are looking for southern charm, South Carolina is the place for you. South Carolina is located deep in the southeastern corner of the United States. Home to magnificent plantations and fine low-country food, one of my favorite destinations is the low country restaurants located in Charleston.

The Civil War, or the aggression of the north as they refer to it, actually began in Charleston Harbor at Fort Sumter.

Magnolia Gardens is one of the many plantations located near Charleston. Along with Middleton Place, once owned by one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and Drayton Hall located nearby make for an interesting day trip while visiting Charleston.

Beautiful walkways make for an enjoyable afternoon touring the grounds.

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.

Magnolia has been selected as one of “America’s Most Beautiful Gardens”, and is the only garden honored with this distinction in the State of South Carolina!

South Carolina Plantation Life

Gone are the days of old, when plantation life in the south exemplified elegant living at it’s finest.

Art Prints

Middleton Place

In a day when life was hard, and many of the comforts of modern day life was nonexistent, people carved a few of the niceties of life out of the daily grind.

Although the nation had many ills in those days, and for many life wasn’t much better than it had been for generations, there were many signs that a better life, or the opportunity for a better life, was on the horizon.

Many of the old plantations have fallen into ruin and thus disappeared. Two that remain, Drayton Hall, which has survived two wars and a hurricane and Middleton place are located just outside Charleston South Carolina.

Both are very interesting and give an inside view of what life was all about during the early history of our country.

Fort Sumter

Your favorite SOUTHERN STATES store.

Anyone traveling in the Charleston South Carolina area would enjoy a short trip by ferry to Fort Sumter.
Built in 1829, it is one of the oldest forts in the U.S., construction still wasn’t finished in 1860 when the Civil War began. It is built in the shape of a pentagon being 170 to 190 feet long with five foot thick walls.

It was designed to house 650 men and 135 guns, although it was never filled to capacity,  undermanned because Democratic president James Buchanan reduced the size of the military.

The local elites observed the start of the Civil War from “The Battery” which is located on the waterfront in downtown Charleston while sipping wine and eating pastries.

As beautiful as it is, the history of MAGNOLIA GARDENS is even more interesting:
Seeking their fortunes in America, Thomas Drayton and his son Thomas, Jr. boarded the ship “Willing Wind” in 1676 and headed for the New World.

Their original destination was Barbados, as sugar plantations had sprung up all over the Caribbean and West Indies. Men who were willing to gamble were becoming wealthy overnight. At that time the population of Barbados had exploded to make it the most densely populated portion of the British Empire, however by the time the Draytons reached Barbados, most of the land had been taken.

Forcing them to look elsewhere, they finally decided on the Carolinas, in particular, Charles Towne and the low country surrounding it.

Soon after arriving, Stephen Fox, another Barbadian purchased land along the Ashley River next to the Draytons, which he named Magnolia Gardens. In consequence, Thomas Drayton Jr. married Stephen Fox’s daughter, Ann, and thus began a long 300-year  family ownership of Magnolia Gardens.

The Drayton family became one of the most affluent in the colonies and were actively involved in the foundation of our country. They lived lives either in the Military as officers, as Clergy, or as gentlemen planters, which gave them ample time and means to pursue service in government.
