The (Accidental) Nuclear Attack on South Carolina

The serene Southern community of Florence, South Carolina is like most others – tree-lined streets that hang over a historic downtown. Yet, Florence is note-worthy for another reason. This tranquil city about 80 miles east of Columbia is the only place on American soil that has suffered from the dropping of a nuclear bomb.

In this episode, The SouthernWay’s Darrell Lee travels to Florence to find the crater left behind by this nuclear accident. It takes a little detective work, but Darrell finally finds the bomb site deep in the middle of the woods near Florence.

As always, this episode features music created by Darrell Lee that is available for purchase via digital download.
