More than 150 years ago, the legend of Alice Flagg of the Hermitage began. This young lady from the banks of the inlet in Georgetown County has touched the lives of many, including the Chandler boys – who grew up sleeping in Alice’s room. Variations to the history are plentiful, but there is evidence to prove…she did exist.

With the support of his parents, Josh and Tiffany, Jackson pleaded for the rules to be changed so he and his younger twin brothers, Gabe and Riley, could volunteer.
