South Carolina Archives and History Program
The Lost Hundred Years in the History of South Carolina – The Story of Santa Elena
Speaker: Mr. William S. “Bill” Davies, Jr.
Columbus landed in the “New World” in 1492. Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement, was founded in 1607; the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. Most courses in United States history skip that 100 plus years between these settlements, but major events occurred then. Santa Elena was the first European capital in what became the United States; it was located in present day South Carolina. This is the story of those lost or missing years of our history.
The event is free for members of the South Carolina Archives and History Foundation and $10.00 for non-members.
