Stono Rebellion[edit]

Can anyone confirm that this IS one of the sites of the Stono Rebellion?

Although it is the Stono Bridge, it appears that the band of slaves would be 1) heading in the wrong direction if they wanted to get to Florida from Johns Island and 2) would take them straight into Charleston ... probably not the best idea. Senyab (talk) 14:59, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Also, can someone who is more familiar with the area (I live 1000+ miles away but still consider Charleston home) verify that this is not a combined wiki of the old Limehouse Bridge from Charleston to Johns Island (a swingspan bridge if I remember correctly) and the Maybank Highway bridge connecting James Island and Johns Island near Buzzards Roost Marina.

  • These are not the same bridges. An online article discusses them separately. See [1] as quoted below:

Old Limehouse Bridge to boost reefs.

Byline: EDWARD C. FENNELL

Workers hang on the steel frame of a new piling at the construction site for the new Stono River bridge. Like the new Limehouse Bridge, the 65-foot-high fixed-span bridge will eliminate bridge openings that have halted traffic to and from Johns Island.

The nearly completed span of the new Stono River bridge takes shape, as seen from the old bridge. The new Stono bridge, which will connect James and Johns islands via Maybank Highway, is expected to open this fall....

A new $21 million Limehouse Bridge, which links Johns Island to Savannah Highway via Main Road, opened this week beside the old one, which opened in 1958....

Also, comparing the photos of the new Limestone Bridge at [2] to satellite photos of the Storno bridge shows that they are not the same bridge. --Kevin Murray (talk) 19:43, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, these are two different bridges. This article states that the Stono Bridge (Maybank Highway bridge) was a swingspan bridge. It was not - Limehouse was. This article seems to reference two different bridges as one. I also don't believe that THIS bridge was near the site of the Stono Rebellion. Can anyone confirm?

    • This information has been uncontested for sometime after an AfD and other scrutiny. Of course we want to be accurate, but I think that you, as a new contributor to the project, should demonstrate some evidence of your assertions. Can you refute the information at [3] which refers to the prior Maybank highway bridge as being a swing-span? Sources can be wrong, but we need something to guide us. --Kevin Murray (talk) 07:49, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
