The event, from Oct. 14-15, will include a variety of topics on Marion and his role in the war for American independence and other aspects of the conflict.
What does South Carolina have to do with our Alabama ancestors? A lot!
Many of the Americans who came to the Alabama and Mississippi territories in the early 19th century migrated from Britain’s former Southern colonies, including South Carolina.
