That’s the view of our speaker Tuesday night. And it’s a position he explained with knowledge, humor, passion and a wealth of facts! In fact, he feels it was a century worth of work ethic and world awareness that made possible the eventual recruitment of Boeing, Volvo, BMW and other large employers to the Lowcountry and South Carolina.
Compagna took the crowd on a journey that began with the Mississippian people through colonization, the Revolution, Civil War, “Remember the Maine”, World Wars I and II and tied it all into what is now the former Navy Base and Shipyard.
