This book contains over one hundred short stories about life in Berkeley County, SC. You will also find some interesting pictures taken here in this county. These are true stories but I used fictitious names for the main characters as I want to get the message out without hurting anyone. This book will appeal to the ole folks as well as the young and will be a priceless possession in the future. There will never be another book like this as most all of the characters have left Planet Earth and I am now eighty two years old. The subjects in each story are different. I have covered the days before and during the great depression, World War II, moonshine whiskey, outrunning revenue agents, and living through generations of crooked politicians. I was born in Shulerville, SC on August 4, 1924 and was drafted into the army on August 4th, 1943. I served twenty-eight months in the military, eighteen of these in Italy and eight of these were on the front lines with the 91st Infantry Division. We were part of the Fifth Army under the command of General Mark Clark. After my discharge from the army, I went to barber college in Greenville, SC.
I followed this trade until 1947 and then began working for Westvaco. I retired from there in 1987and since then I have enjoyed my small farm and working several part time jobs. I have written one book (The Ole Days in Berkeley County, SC) which was published by 1st books on 5/13/02. I trust that you will enjoy reading these stories about life in the ole days of Berkeley County.
