Meet the Author


Robert N. Rosen is a native Charlestonian, a lawyer, and the author of A Short History of Charleston and Confederate Charleston, among other books. He currently serves as president of the Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust, on the Web at www.sccivilwar.org. Richard W. Hatcher III is historian at the Fort Sumter National Monument. The National Park Service has encouraged the creation of local charitable foundations to act as "friends" of national monuments. The Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust is such a 501(c)(3) foundation, which raises tax-deductible funds to put on public programs to support Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie and to further their educational and historical purposes. The trust has taken the lead in commemorating the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War in the South Carolina Lowcountry. The authors' royalties from the sale of this book will go to the trust.
