Dewees Island Mentioned in Newspaper Series on Civil War

The Charleston Post and Courier newspaper is running a series of 20 articles about the Civil War for the 150th anniversary.  The most recent article mentions Dewees Island in the first paragraph:

The blockade runner was hugging the shore of Dewees Island, trying to sneak into Charleston Harbor before first light.

While most of the story isn’t about Dewees, it’s still nice to see the mention.  You can read the full article by clicking here.
