Recommended Reading

“Redbones of Louisiana” by Don C. Marler

347 p., SC, photos, maps, index, bibliography, endnotes…$25.00

This tragic history covers 200 years of the people who came to be known as the “Redbones” between South Carolina and their resettlement in the Neutral Strip of Louisiana. Sometimes their history is violent as with the Bearhead Creek Massacre of 1887 or the Orange County War of 1856. Although this book does not have all the answers, Mr. Marler’s book is must reading for the interested reader of Redbone history.
