Editorial Reviews

Booknews
First published in 1928, this study describes and analyzes the Huguenot migration and settlement in South Carolina throughout the colonial period. Hirsch (1878-1976), who taught history at Ohio Wesleyan U. and the U. of Michigan, reveals how the Huguenot communities and churches throughout the state were founded and how the first-generation Huguenots integrated into the religious, political, and socio-economic fabric of early South Carolina. The introduction by Ruymbeke (history, College of Charleston) places the book in its historiographical context and brings to bear his own research in the French archives. Annotation c.
