From the Tuesday, February 9, Post & Courier:
“MONCKS CORNER – Archaeologists believe they’ve found the remnants of illegal liquor stills in the Francis Marion National Forest from the mid-1920s that belonged to a man who worked with famous gangster Al Capone to run moonshine out of South Carolina.
And while curious Lowcountry residents know a lot about moonshining history in Berkeley County, not a lot has been documented. So a group of archaeologists is working to fix that by putting together a puzzle of charcoal and pieces of metal found in the forest.”
