Regina  I found some sites in South Carolina recently .  Richard Kirkland's grave for one .  It is in the Quaker cemetery in Camden South Carolina, his home town.  On either side of the headstone is a real canteen hanging off the stone.  Very emotional .

Not really off the beaten path but the three Hunley Crews in Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston is an interesting place to go after seeing the Hunley in it's  tank .  We were the only one in both cemeteries the day my friend took me. 

Old Santee Canal Park in Moncks Corner has a model of the David , the first torpedo attack on a Union ironclad  The New Ironsides .  They also have  a scale model and display of the David in the center there.  Here at Stony Landing is where the David was built.  worth the trip.
