Lonnie Hamilton, III noted the unusual use of a former military
facility by quoting from Isaiah 2:4, “They shall beat their swords into
ploughshares.” The library is named for author Edgar Allan Poe, who
was stationed on Sullivan’s Island as a private in the United States
Army in 1827 and 1828, and who used the island setting as the
background for his famous story, “The Gold Bug.”
Battery Gadsden was named for Colonel James Gadsden (1788-
1858) of South Carolina, who had served as an engineer officer
during the War of 1812 and later as inspector general. During the
Seminole Wars, Gadsden served as quartermaster general of the
Florida Volunteers. The Battery was placed on the National Register
of Historic Places in July 1974.
Battery Gadsden was designed to mount four six-inch guns on
pedestal mounts with fixed cartridges. Battery Gadsden was officially
transferred to the Artillery Sept. 10, 1906. The four guns were removed
for service in France in 1917, and the carriages were scrapped in
1920. The walls of the battery are two feet thick, a solid protection for
the 15,000 books in the 2,000 sq. ft. library.

t was a wet weekend on Isle of Palms as two events centered
around the summer sun and surf. The inaugural Holy City
SwimJam was held at the Windjammer on Saturday, Sept. 8
and raised money for Operation Restored Warrior, an organization
established to meet the needs of our Military men and women who
are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Combat
Related Stress. 
Also on Saturday, Tidalwave Watersports hosted its first annual
Residents' Day, offering its full array of activities to IOP residents
for a donation to the cause. One hundred percent of proceeds
benefitted MUSC’s Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital.
