Product Description:
In this two-volume, thirty CD set, South Carolina's leading historian Walter Edgar presents a sweeping narrative of a state with an illustrious, sometimes infamous, past. He describes in very human terms 475 years of recorded history in the Palmetto State, including the experiences of all South Carolinians--rich and poor, male and female, those with roots in Africa and in Europe as well as Native Americans. In an eminently readable presentation, Edgar uses letters, diaries, and other writings to let voices from the past take part in telling the state's fascinating story.
Volume 1 (discs 1 to 15) spans from prehistory to the antebellum era. The audio edition of South Carolina: A History is a project of South Carolina Educational Communications, South Carolina Educational Radio, and the University of South Carolina Press. Walter Edgar's recordings were made possible by grants from the Stringer Foundation and the Callie and John Rainey Foundation.

Product Description:

A slave determined to gain freedom, a widow battling poverty and despair, a man of God grappling with spiritual and worldly troubles, and a former Confederate soldier seeking a new life. They lived in the South during 1865 -- a year that saw war, disunion, and slavery give way to peace, reconstruction, and emancipation.

Between January and December 1865, these four people witnessed, from very different vantage points, the death of the Old South and the birth of the New South. Civil War historian Stephen V. Ash reconstructs their daily lives, their fears and hopes, and their frustrations and triumphs in vivid detail -- telling a dramatic story of real people in a time of great upheaval and offering a fresh perspective on a pivotal moment in history.
