There was a very good program today at the St. Helena Branch Library about the great hurricane of 1893.  The program was presented BT Grace Cordial, manager of the Beaufort District Collection of historical materials and resources.  A great deal of interesting information was shared during the program.  Of was a fantastic way foe us to begin our home school year.  A combination of South Carolina and U.S. history, and weather facts were presented. Interesting local diary entries, along with newspaper articles about the storm provided good insight about the conditions during and after the storm. A special thanks to Grace Cordial for all the preparation she did for this event.
