South Carolina’s Military Past - A Presentation by Mike Robertson

Thursday, January 23, 2020

Did you know that more Revolutionary War battles and skirmishes were fought in South Carolina than almost any other state? Mike Robertson, Principal Planner for the Town of Mount Pleasant, returns for another dive into local history. His presentation focuses on nearby military engagements in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, including highlights of Fort Sullivan, Haddrell's Point, Lemprieres Point, the Massachusetts's 54th Infantry Troops, and Mount Pleasant’s surrender to Union troops. Robertson earned a bachelor's degree in history from Furman University and a master's degree in historic preservation and planning from Savannah College of Art and Design.
