South Carolina History Tour

Fort Sumter

Fort Sumter

Join us on our 2016 South Carolina Tour to explore the rich heritage of this state. We will travel throughout the state, and into northern Georgia, visiting battlefields, historic churches, forts, and period homes. Visit with us the sites of some dramatic battles of the Revolutionary War, such as King’s Mountain and Cowpens. Explore the beautiful city of Charleston and take the ferry across the harbor on our way to Fort Sumter. We will visit Fort Pulaski, complete with moat and ramparts, and tour the city of Savannah. We will also see the H. L. Hunley, first militarily successful submarine, visit a period plantation and spend an afternoon relaxing on the beach.
