About the Book

Tom Horton’s stories, over 400 in all, on local and Southern history, have entertained and enlightened folks for decades. As a noted history teacher, newspaper columnist, and banquet speaker, Horton has captured the attention of his listeners and readers as he recounts the unique and less well-known aspects of the South’s colorful history. You will find everything from tales of the colonial pirates who squandered gold along our coast to modern bank mergers that left shareholders out in the cold. Soon, Tom Horton plans to turn his hand to fiction - for some of old Carolina’s stories still cannot be told otherwise. As the old folks always said, “Sooner or later, the truth will out.” Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy Volume V of History’s Lost Moments.

About the Author

Dr. Tom Horton writes history in the same folksy manner that he's known for across the state in his banquet addresses. The stories he tells are the ones that he heard from the old folks as he was growing up partly on the Lowcountry coast and partly in the Upstate. Few people know the lore of South Carolina as well as he does, and no one can tell the stories better than he! Volume V continues in the same tradition as he began in Volumes I, II,III and IV. There's more to come!
