We are moving, hopefully for the last time. My thanks to Traci Parsons who has worked so hard to move these pages and to give them a new look and complete make over. She is a wonderful friend and I am extremely grateful for her hours of hard work.

Moving is a long and difficult process. Hopefully the Sixteenth site will follow shortly to the new address. My thanks for your patience, remember to bookmark the new address. This site will remain but will no longer be updated.

The delays and off time with Geocites and Tripod, I cannot control, but the sites will continue. I thank all of you for your support and kindness to me. I had no idea. Again my thanks, steve

Recent Works on South Carolina

Mary's World: Love, War, and Family Ties in Nineteenth-century Charleston.

This biography of Mary Pringle and her family (which included eight Confederate heroes, including Capt. Robert Pringle, after whom Battery Pringle on the Stono River near Charleston was posthumously named) explores in great detail how the war affected one large Confederate family of South Carolina rice planters.

Mary's World: Love, War, and Family Ties in Nineteenth-Century Charleston.

New publications that I plan to read as soon as possible:

BRENNAN, PATRICK - Secessionville: Assault on Charleston

I promised Patrick Brennan I would read his book, I did, expecting not to find what I found. Then I went out and ordered a copy, paid good money for something printed after 1965 and written by someone from north of Kentucky. This book is a must for anyone who loves the war. Patrick's work is an amazing thing, and thank goodness for it. He give us what most seek, a pure Yankee bean counting, footnoted study with a story as only a fire eating southern could tell it... not bad Pat, damn near perfect... and those of you who know me know I don't hold much stock for most of the modern writers, so these are strong words. Trust me you need the book, go buy it. Makes me want to find a couple of more good ones. Pat's words are like music, almost a lyric, and it is good to hear Dixie one more time, even when blended with that other song they call a hymn.
