Ridgeland ~ America Before the Revolution

Event Details

More then 40 years before the English settled Jamestown, a group of French Huguenots, seeking religious freedom, established a colony at Port Royal Sound, South Carolina and later one in North Florida. This program examines the colonists’ bold leaders, Jean Ribault and Rene Goulaine de Laudonniere, life in the harsh New World. Learn about the horrific return to Europe of some of the settlers, and why South Carolinians and Floridians don’t speak French today.
The Morris Center welcomes back David Jones for yet another insightful historical program on March 15th. Join us for a presentation on little known history of our Lowcountry.
