Excerpt from Guide to Charleston Illustrated: Being a Sketch of the History of Charleston, S. C., With Some Account of Its Present Condition, With Numerous Engravings West on the American Continent. Two lines of railroad connect the city With the North and South, and only a few connecting links are wanting to give us three competing lines to the West, and these are being rapidly supplied by energetic men. Railroads in the city run down to the wharves and deliver produce alongside the shipping, affording thereby a prompt and safe landing of goods. The fruit, sugar, coffee, tobacco, and tropical productions of Cuba, the West Indies and South America, come directly to our port in large Shipments, and that the year round. Our harbor is never frozen; steamers and railroads never obstructed, delaying transportation and increas ing expenses. Steamers ply weekly, or more fre quently, from this port to New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Savannah, and other places. From early Spring, in February, to the fall, they supply the North with vegetables in great variety and of un surpassed quality. Strawberries, peas, beans, pota toes, squashes, cucumbers, tomatoes, melons, cabbage, and other table plants, are Shipped in immense quan tities from farms adjacent to the city. Thousands of tons of phosphate, both in crude rock and manipu lated, were sent off last season, and some of it was exported to Europe.

Although until now virtually unacknowledged in the field of women’ education, Anne Jemima Clough was active throughout her long life in the field. Among other positions, she held the position of principal of Newnham College, Cambridge, for more than a decade, from 1880 until her death in 1892. But in spite of her prominent position, her achievements were overshadowed by her more visible and vocal contemporaries in higher education, such as Emily Davies and Josephine Butler. Nevertheless, she was always a loyal and tenacious follower and an uncomplaining worker. In a subdued way she lived and laboured fervently for the furtherance of women’s education. Quietly, and with remarkably little encouragement or guidance, she pursued and finally realized her dream, a dream that would at last allow her to help make education accessible to all women. In this volume I have compiled, edited, and annotated most of Anne Jemima Clough’s unpublished papers. In addition to transcribing her diaries, or notebooks, I have incorporated chronologically into the text some examples of the voluminous amount of correspondence she wrote and received during a long life filled with activity The Anne Jemima Clough.papers will not only provide raw material for scholars studying the women’s movement during the nineteenth century, but they will also be a useful and engaging read for all students and scholars of the women’s movement, education, Victorian feminism and gender studies.

The Catawba—one of the few Native American communities who remained in the Carolinas after the notorious Trail of Tears—have a rich and fascinating history that can be dated to 2400 BC. Once the inhabitants of a large swath of land that covered parts of North and South Carolina, most Catawba now live on a reservation in York County, South Carolina. In Catawba Nation: Treasures in History, Thomas J. Blumer seeks to preserve and present the history of this resilient people. Blumer chronicles Catawba history from the first contact with Spanish explorers to their present-day fame as makers of traditional Catawba pottery. In this collection of writings, we learn of Hernando de Soto’s meeting with the Lady of Cofitachique, the leadership of Chief James Harris and the fame of potter Georgia Harris, who won the National Heritage Award for her art. Using an engaging mix of folklore, oral history and historical records, Blumer weaves an accessible history of the tribe, preserving their story of suffering and survival for future generations.
