“De Water Brought Us; De Water Take Us
The Road to Frogmore tells
the story of Laura Towne, a missionary who traveled to South Carolina in the
middle of the Civil War to help slaves whose owners had abandoned them. This
lecture looks at some of the problems she faced as she tried to reconcile her
version of Christianity with the traditions of African religions followed by
the slaves. Be prepared for spooky tales, night hags, and graybeard sinners who
hang in the trees.
A “Damned Yankee” in Civil War
He was from Boston. She was a South Carolina cotton heiress. Their
marriage was happy and carefree until the war brought its own challenges – invasion,
fire, a wounded son -- into their lives. Can they and their family survive? The answers lie hidden in the city of Charleston and its own struggles.
