Carolina Day - 2014

New rule - seersucker suits for everyone on Carolina Day! To be accurate - seersucker suits & sun dresses. No exceptions. Start planning your wardrobe for next year.

Since Carolina Day is always on June 28th, it is usually on a work day and I miss this colorful photo op.
Carolina Day celebrates the American victory at the Battle of Sullivan’s Island on June 28, 1776. On this day forces under Colonels William Moultrie and William Thomson repelled assaults by the Royal Navy and the British Army. The first Carolina Day was celebrated in 1777, and the Palmetto Society and the South Carolina Historical Society continue the commemoration today.
