I’ve written previously about Nat Fuller, the singular hospitality provider known for hosting a Reconciliation Dinner a week after the end of The Late Unpleasantness. (You can read my posts here, here and here.) For a fairly thorough account of his life, visit the Lowcountry Digital History Initiative.
I have, at long last last, submitted a grant proposal for a clean up of the Herriott St. Cemetery. If approved, my goal is to gather a coalition of volunteers for a weekend cleanup in late January, ideally with matching contributions from Charleston area funeral services, hardware stores and hospitality providers.
If you’d be interested in being part of such an effort or contributing in some way,please share this post with friends and colleagues. Weigh in!
I’ll keep you abreast of my discoveries and progress.
