GT at Hayne's Tomb

Deep within a wooded area near Jacksonboro, SC, is the tomb of South Carolina Revolutionary War hero, Isaac Hayne. Hayne, long a respected even sacred name in this state, was executed in Charleston by British occupying forces. In violation of all rules of military conduct in war, he was hanged like a common felon, a travesty recorded in stone upon his tomb.

The pastoral scene above is Hayne's garden, a short distance from the ruins of Pon Pon Chapel of Ease which may well pop up in another posting.

There are many such beautiful and historic sites in the state which are by nature and later necessity hidden from public view.

This little blue car is curious and persistent. Ask not for whom the GT rolls. It rolls for thee
