Overview

Toss out the essays, forget the boring lectures and don't worry about memorizing dates. Take a tour through the history of South Carolina, the South and the entire nation with this collection of forgotten moments.

Dr. Tom Horton has sifted through the diary entries, old newspaper accounts and textbooks so you can make sense of it all. You'll discover:

  • • How a contingent of Carolinians, led by Joseph Brevard Kershaw of Camden, failure to seize Little Round Top perhaps led to the end of the Civil War.
  • • Why leading cabinet and furniture maker William Enston of Charleston should be in any pantheon of leading philanthropists.
  • • How Thomas Pinckney, a respected soldier, governor, diplomat and even presidential candidate, became America's forgotten founding father.
  • • And much more, including the little-told stories of why Napoleon's sister-in-law was an American Hussy, why Indian fighters made the best Civil War Generals and what made John Rutledge so special.

It's all collected in one book, and it's a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how History's Lost Moments helped shape the world as it is today.
