Historical Markers in Sumter, SC or The State of South Carolina

By
Real Estate Agent with AgentOwned Realty, Heritage Group, Inc.

 

South Carolina is choked full of history.  From General Thomas Sumter, to Francis Marion (remember Mel Gibson in The Patriot, totally reminded me of Francis Marion), there is history every where you turn in South Carolina.  

 

I was raised with parents who would take off on a drive to see something on a weekend just to do something.  So seeing Historical Markers along the road was a reason to stop and look and read and learn.  I am looking forward to the day my daughter is older and understands more and we can start out on these adventures. 

 

I was in downtown Sumter one day and saw one right next to a corner.  Of course, I could only read the name as I drove by but I wanted to read more about Potters’ Raid.  So I did a search and found Historical Markers are cataloged on the internet on many different sites.  Some show actual picture of the plaques and others just a text description.  So if you want to find a new place to visit, I would suggest Thomas Sumter’s Gravesite or want to read about a marker you have seen here are some of the sites to visit.

 

 

Get out and enjoy this wonderful fall weather and go visit someplace different.  Take in the sites and then even do some more research.  Nothing better than a living history lesson.
