SC Lede: Christina Rae Butler's 'Lowcountry at High Tide'
On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for August 10, 2021, we're joined by Christina Rae Butler, professor of Historic Preservation at the American College of the Buildings Arts and College of Charleston and owner of Butler Preservation, L.C. In her book Lowcountry at High Tide: A History of Flooding, Drainage, and Reclamation in Charleston, South Carolina (2020, USC Press), Butler uses three hundred years of archival records to track not only the many changes made to Charleston's landscape past and present, but also the impact those efforts have had on the residents at various socio-economic levels throughout its history.
