On January 9, 1861, Citadel cadets on Morris Island arguably fired the first shots of the Civil War, and they did so under a red version of the South Carolina flag. One hundred years later and during the centennial celebration of that day, a mural was presented depicting this unique flag.

Charleston County School District establishes partnership with four colleges to benefit Burke High

It’s less than two miles between downtown Charleston’s lone neighborhood high school and any one of four colleges.

“It doesn’t make sense to have a brand-new school (building) surrounded by The Citadel, the Medical University of South Carolina, the College of Charleston and Trident Tech … and the kids are failing and leaving the school,” said state Sen. Robert Ford, D-Charleston. “We could have the best school in the country.”

Ford and state Rep. Wendell Gilliard, D-Charleston, decided to arrange a meeting with the college presidents and Charleston County school officials to talk about Burke High.

The result has been a commitment to a new partnership — the University Center at Burke High. Each of the four colleges will help develop courses aligned with its expertise, and high school students will be able to earn high school and college credit.

Citadel political science professor Scott Buchanan has researched special elections and concluded that Tuesday’s outcome won’t reverberate nationally — and not just because of the uniqueness of the candidates. “We basically found special elections are their own special creatures,” he said. “They revolve around local issues, and you can’t make any interpretation into national trends or even statewide trends.”

The hero behind Santee's Wings and Wheels

Over the past few months, I've had the pleasure of becoming friends with the large and lively family of the late Dolphin Overton III. I never had the honor of meeting Mr. Overton, primarily because his health failed so badly in the weeks before he died in Georgetown on March 25, but what I've learned about him makes for a truly remarkable American story. For all you Citadel folks, there's an important connection here because he was awarded a posthumous honorary degree at yesterday's graduation.
