Walterboro, SC

We moved north to Walterboro, South Carolina for a couple of days and plan to head over to see Charleston, SC tomorrow.

Walterboro's main claim to fame in the 20th century was that it supplied advanced flight training to about 500 Tuskegee Airmen and housed over 250 German POW's.

Tensions flared because the POW's had more privileges than the black pilots. Nice county museum with a whole floor dedicated to the Tuskegee Airmen.

Small town America holds its share of stories and Walterboro is no exception. Glad we stopped here for a couple of days.
