Relics of the Coastal Empire:
The Civil War Years
A study of the artifacts of coastal Georgia and the South Carolina Lowcountry.
A hard-covered book with over 1,000 full color photographs of excavated Civil War artifacts on 300 pages!
“I received my book today and it is awesome. One of the best, I have already started reading it. I wish I had some of the information contained in this book back in the 80's when I was hunting almost every week on the Georgia and S.C. coast.”
This book is the result of over ten years of research and collecting photos to document the Civil War history of coastal Georgia and South Carolina from Charleston S.C. down to Brunswick, GA. Not only is it a great reference book for identifying artifacts for collectors and historians, but it is a historical reference for Civil War activity for this area known as the Coastal Empire.
“Very impressed with the content, layout and especially the photography. Already identified two "whatzits" I found a couple of years ago”
“Fantastic book. Love it.”
“This book will serve as an excellent addition to most anyone’s’ library with particular appeal to the relic hunter and student of history as well as the professional seeking a go to book for relic identification purposes with accompanying historical narratives. I see this book easily selling out and quickly becoming a collectors item opening the way to many other printings for future generations to enjoy.”
“Received my copy today and this is the best relic book I have ever looked at. Will be gazing through these pages for a long time.”
The book doesn't just cover Civil War relics, but artifacts from plantations, life in the city and the struggle endured during this period of American history. From period jewelry, tools & hardware, coinage, and bottles to the variety of artifacts found in military encampments, this book offers a pictorial history of life on the southeast coast. Also included is a section on presentation weapons and a previously unpublished poem written one month after the Battle of Fredericksburg about Savannah's General Lafayette McLaws.
