Jack Parker was born in Pennsylvania, raised in Delaware, and lived in Virginia, California, Colorado, and South Carolina. He earned a Bachelors Degree in Education and served 4 years in the US Navy as an Asst. Navigator aboard the USS Spiegel Grove, then as a Navigator and Executive Officer aboard the USS Pitkin County. After leaving the Navy, he moved to Colorado, and rode and packed horses into the Gunnison Wilderness Area. He then spent 5 years living aboard a 43' yawl home ported in Charleston, South Carolina, and taught several people to sail and live on the water. He lived at times near historic McClellanville and Eutawville, South Carolina. There he became interested in visiting Revolutionary War sites and discovered that directions were non-existent. Thus, the idea of Parker's Guide was born. Three and a half years of legwork in the field have brought this practical guide to you.
