                           Quick Fact Friday
 
The Battle at Hog Island
 
This Monday commemorates the 244th anniversary of the Battle for Hog Island. Hog Island was the name of what is now known as Patriots Point. As relations between the British government and South Carolina colonials deteriorated through the summer of 1775, colonists seized Fort Johnson from British control on September 14 of that year. Royal Governor William Campbell then dissolved the Commons House of Assembly and fled to the 16-gun HMS Tamar, anchored in Charleston harbor. Along with other British warships in the outer harbor, the Tamar harassed and seized merchant ships coming to Charleston, prompting the Provincial Congress to purchase the merchant schooner, Defense, and convert her into the first warship of the South Carolina Navy.

The Importance of Our Area's Clay Soil
 
Around 1,200 years ago, American Indians living along the Wando River made distinctive pottery using limestone and clay from the river banks. This type of pottery is found only in the Wando River Basin and is distinguished by the presence of limestone used to temper the clay and make it more pliable. Wando pottery was often decorated with impressed and stamped designs.
 
Centuries later, brick making supplemented agricultural output and was a significant Lowcountry industry from 1740 to 1860. The soils that cover much of the area contain dense red clay and sand making it suitable for brick production. In 1817, "a plantation with a Brick Yard established thereon called Boon Hall" was purchased by John and Henry Horlbeck. The brothers were partners in the construction industry having built several notable structures in Charleston such as the St John's Lutheran Church and St. Stephen's Chapel. The Horlbecks developed the brickyard into a major enterprise. From 1850 to 1860, twenty five million bricks were produced by the enslaved people at a profit of $170,000. The brick yard operated throughout the nineteenth century and was later known as the Horlbeck Brick and Tile Company. The facility consisted of several kilns, workshops, drying areas, a brick lined cistern, a commissary, and a steam boiler. The boiler's brick chimney stands today in Brickyard Plantation.

                          QUICK FACT FRIDAY
Founding Father Charles Pinckney
 
Today, the Historical Commission's Quick Fact Friday features one of the four Founding Fathers of our nation who were born, owned properties, and/or had close family living in colonial Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. We would like to acquaint you with Charles Pinckney. Charles Pinckney was born in Charleston, South Carolina on October 26, 1757, and died on October 29, 1824. Pinckney was the fourth son of eight children born to Col. Charles Pinckney and Frances Brewton Pinckney. The Pinckney family owned several properties including two in Mount Pleasant: One was a country estate on Long Point Road called Snee Farm Plantation, and the other was a Haddrell's Point summer house know as  Shell Hall. Charles Pinckney founded the Democratic Party in South Carolina and managed Thomas Jefferson's South Carolina political campaign. He worked diligently in that capacity to negotiate the treaty to purchase Louisiana. Pinckney also urged the South Carolina legislature to support meaningful reforms, including free public education for the state's children. During his illustrious political career that covered South Carolina, the United States, and Spain, Pinckney proved himself one of the key political intellects of the nation's foundational period.
