about bill

I love South Carolina, what can I say? My travels and interests have taken me to many different places, but it is here, in one of our country's first thirteen colonies that enjoy most. It is all here, the good, bad and ugly of American history. And to think we can visit so many of these places and landmarks of the past with just a few hours of effort...

Thank you for visiting my website.
