Before and during “The Great Carolina Hurricane of 1854,” there were storms between people in its path along the Pon Pon River. The river divided Colleton and Charleston Districts (Counties) in South Carolina and supported the flourishing rice-growing Tiffany and Jehossee Plantations. When hurricanes struck, the devastation they wrought could change the fortunes of plantation owners and radically change the lives of the enslaved rice farmers and engineers working the land. Between hurricanes, storms arose among the people of the land. The arrival of a hurricane could unleash havoc unrelated to water and wind.
