At Ebenezer

Well, yay! The last post actually posted, so let’s finish up those historical markers. 

 

John and William Bartram

  

Ebenezer Creek and the March to the Sea


 

The Old River Road

  

Silk culture at Ebenezer

  
 

The town of Ebenezer


So why are we in Ebenezer, anyway?  

I got a text that morning from a FaceBook friend from my hometown. She and her husband were traving through and decided to make a side trip to Ebenezer to check out a lead on an ancestor. Sugar is not spontaneous, but on this day he was. There’s a wildlife refuge between us and Ebenezer, so what could take 20 minutes, if there were actually a bridge across the river, takes an hour in the real world. 
There’s a church at Ebenezer plus a little museum that is open limited hours. Maybe the museum has the info our friends seek. 

Let’s go back for a day trip! But take a lunch.

    Lincoln’s approval of Sherman’s field orders was one day before my grandmother, Annie Lou Lawton Erwin, was born when her mama had to refugee from the Lowcountry as their house was to be destroyed. This was due to her father being one of the signers of the Ordinance of Secession. They went to a friend’s house in the northwestern part of SC. It was not an easy journey.

    I love stopping for historical markers. Thanks for sharing these that I will probably never drive by.
