Description: Long out-of-print but absolutely invaluable history of the "French Santee" (known to local historians as "The Bible" of this region), this meticulously researched and highly readable work by Anne Baker Leland Bridges and Roy Williams III, both now deceased, has been reprinted by CLASS for the Friends of Hampton Plantation. Spanning the history of the territory between Georgetown and Charleston from 1685-1925, the challenges of the English and the French Huguenots to settle and thrive as refugees from religious persecution is a riveting story as they struggled with climate, terrain, wars, and disease. So many names that grace the streets and buildings of Charleston, McClellanville, and Georgetown find their origins in the families who contributed, out of proportion to their numbers, to the heritage of freedom and prosperity our country enjoys to this day.
