History Monday: The Primaries and ‘My’ Carolinas (Post #956)

January 18, 2008

Did you know that South Carolina is one of the ‘original’ American colonies?  Some well known South Carolina tourist spots  are: Hilton Head Island, Myrtle Beach and Cumberland.


JFK Jr Wedding

Did you know that JFK, Jr got married in Cumberland?  But  ‘that’ Cumberland is on the National Sea Shore of Cumberland Island Georgia.  The marriage ceremony  (pictured above and below)  took place on a Saturday, in 1996, in a small ‘white Chapel’.  The wedding party stayed at ‘The Greyfield Inn’ which is also where the wedding reception was held.  Did you know that this small resort on this secluded barrier island in Georgia where John F Kennedy, Jr  and Miss Carolyn Jeanne Bessette married  was once the vacation home for another famous and important family? ….The ‘Carnegie’  family…
