Event Description:

“Nothing but Indian Corn Meal:” Food in the Carolina Piedmont

Despite Rev. Charles Woodmason’s criticism, the diet in the Carolina Piedmont during the 18th and 19th centuries was diverse and delicious. Join us as our historic interpreters explore the roots of southern cooking, ranging from the average 18th century diet to what Carolina militiamen ate during the American Revolution, as well as food prepared for the enslaved and the elites on the Bratton plantation in the 19th century. (Per DHEC regulations, samples are not available. But recipes are!)

Time Travel Tuesdays: On Tuesdays this summer, join costumed interpreters and explore aspects of 18th and 19th century life for the Bratton family and others in the Carolina Piedmont.
