              • Available at: BDC, BEA, BLU, HHI, LOB, and STH.
              • This program recounts the history of
                the French and Spanish efforts to colonize South Carolina in the 16th
                century.  The focus is on two important settlements located on
                the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot on Parris Island, near Beaufort. 
                Historians related the dramatic history of these settlements and document
                the conflict between France and Spain for this coast more than 100 years
                before Charleston was founded by the English in 1670.  Archaeologists
                describe how they have uncovered the remains of both settlements, providing
                insight into the occupation and ultimate abandonment of these important
                colonial outposts.

              • Follow the path (Barnwell, Charleston,
                and Columbia, South Carolina) traveled by Union General William T. Sherman
                and his soldiers as they marched deep into the Confederacy during the
                final months of the Civil War. This one-hour documentary begins at Kennesaw
                Mountain, Georgia, as Sherman and his 60,000 troops pressed toward Atlanta.
                Upon taking the vital Southern city, he started his infamous march to
                the sea, which culminated in the capture of Savannah, Georgia. He reportedly
                was so struck with the beauty of the coastal city that he ordered it
                spared and presented it to Abraham Lincoln as a “Christmas gift.”
                But Sherman’s troops had a different plan for the state of South Carolina.
                Going through the dense lowcountry swamps, the Union army trudged slowly
                toward the city where secession was born—Columbia, South Carolina.
                The program ends with the burning of Columbia and a firsthand look at
                the destruction of the city.

              • Electricity arrived on Hilton head Island
                in 1951, and a few years later a group of Georgia natives purchased
                some 19-thousand of the island’s 25 thousand acres.  They stopped
                widespread logging and sold land to developers.  In the process,
                they created the framework for the Hilton Head Island we know today. 
                The late Charles Fraser was one of the leaders of that movement. 
                Charles Fraser died in 2002 at the age of 73, in a tragic boat accident
                in the Caribbean.  Harvey Ewing, mayor of Hilton Head Island from
                1991 to 1993 said of his death, “This island is his legacy.” 
                ETV produced Profile: Charles Fraser in 1974, which provides unique
                insight into Fraser and the efforts to create the modern Hilton Head
                Island.
