In December 1780, former Quaker turned general Nathanael Greene took command of the entire Southern Department. He reported only to George Washington himself. Leadership of the southern states to that point in the American Revolution had failed, as the British held all major southern cities, including the important port city of Charleston. Greene faced the British in several key battles in South Carolina in 1781 and ultimately was able to rid the state of the British and free Charleston, but not until 1782, long after the victory at Yorktown. Join author and historian Leigh Moring as she tells the forgotten story of General Nathanael Greene and the liberation of the Lowcountry at the end of the American Revolution. Leigh Moring is the education coordinator for Historic Charleston Foundation, where she manages K–12 educational programming in historic house museums. She attended Clemson University and received her bachelor of arts in history with a concentration in museum studies. Moring went on to pursue her master of arts degree in history from the College of Charleston and the Citadel and graduated in May 2015.
