This website is devoted to compiling news, events and a comprehensive list of links about South Carolina in the Civil War. Historians, researchers, and genealogists should find this page to be extremely useful. People are constantly contacting me about their ancestor. I have neither time nor access to South Carolina libraries to do research for people. This website contains links to help you find answers. If you can't find an answer through these links, your best source of information is The Department of Archives and History in Columbia.
The Friends of the Hunley have a fantasic website that includes information about the submarine, a live cam to watch online the work currently going on, join the Friends group, contribute to the Friends group, and order tickets to visit The Hunley.

Work is underway to write a history of each unit of Joseph Kershaw's Brigade of South Carolina troops. I have already published books on the 2nd and 3rd South Carolina. I hope to re-write these books and am looking for additional information such as copies of letters, diaries and memoirs written by the soldiers. I am also looking for biographical information about them including names of their parents and spouse, date and place of birth, date and cause of death, burial location, profession, etc. If you have information on anyone in these units, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org . Jim Clary is working on the 15th South Carolina. he can be reached at: email@example.com. Sam Davis is working on the 3rd South Carolina Battalion. He can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
