On Thursday, Sept. 26, Gwen Spivey spoke to Mrs. Maroney’s and Mrs. Chassereau’s eighth-grade South Carolina history students at North Augusta Middle. Spivey’s presentation educated students on life in South Carolina’s back country during the Colonial time period. The presentation included items from Spivey’s personal collection of Colonial pieces such as period foods, fabric, clothing, dyes, candy and eating utensils. Students also learned about the Colonial pirates like Edward Teach, also known as “Blackbeard,” who terrorized the South Carolina coast.
