  • Parker's Guide to the Revolutionary War in South Carolina is 553 pages of information with maps, photos and illustrations, and action locations in all the counties in the state.

  • The 2nd Edition has about 200 additional sites in it with a completely different cover, 2 indexes, one index by county, one with the chronology of the actions and a standard index in the back and much more, including end notes.

  • Most people do not know that South Carolina had a “Boston Tea Party” of sorts on 10/18/1765 while the celebrated Boston Tea Party was on December 16, 1773. South Carolina forced the removal of British Stamps from Charleston and became a leader of the rebellion against British taxation. The account is on page 102 of Parker's Guide.

  • Another fact that most people do not know is that on April 21, 1775, the State House Armory and British magazines in Charleston (Cochran's) and Mount Pleasant (Hobcaw) were broken into by Patriot South Carolinians only two days after the Battle of Lexington. All the arms, powder and shot were requisitioned for the Patriot cause from all three locations. The short time span between the Lexington and South Carolina actions did not allow South Carolinians to have received news of the action in Lexington, Massachusetts until weeks later. South Carolina was again in the forefront of the American Revolution. The accounts are on pages 82, 87, and 127 of Parker's Guide.

Jack Parker was born in Pennsylvania, raised in Delaware, and lived in Virginia, California, Colorado, and South Carolina. He earned a bachelor's degree in education and served four years in the U.S. Navy as an Assistant Navigator aboard the USS Spiegel Grove, then as Navigator and Executive Officer aboard the USS Pitkin County. After leaving the Navy, he moved to Colorado rode and packed horses into the Gunnison Wilderness Area. He then spent five years living aboard a 43 foot yawl, home ported in Charleston, SC. While living in Eutawville, SC, he became interested in visiting Revolutionary War sites and discovered that directions were non-existent. Thus, the idea of Parker's guide was born. Eight years of legwork in the field have brought this practical guide to you. Jack Parker
