Walterboro ~ Barbados Carolina Connection

Join us once again as Rhoda Green takes us through the dynamic story of Barbados and the Carolina Connection. This story is one which is as fascinating as it is mind-blowing including the fact that Barbados is known as the only colony to have founded another colony. When Barbados was still a colony of Britain, Barbadian set sail from Speightstown to the United States, and founded the colony of the Carolinas. Thus, historically Barbados played a major role in the settlement of the Americas, and was also described as the springboard for demographic movement in the colonization of the Americas. Approximately 7 to 10 million Americans can trace their roots to Barbados.
