Excerpt from article: “Within a few minutes of their meeting, Fitzpatrick offered Preservation South Carolina the rights to his book t to help raise awareness about the importance of preserving the state’s sacred spaces and to draw attention to those most at risk. Fitzpatrick also published and donated 1,000 copies of the book, with all the proceeds from sales going to a special fund to help repair and protect these important state treasures.”
