Whopper gator found Hilton Head so nice it visited twice + video | Untamed Lowcountry | The Island Packet | Civil War in South Carolina | Scoop.it
Joe Maffo got a call from Beaufort County emergency dispatch at about 1:30 a.m. May 31. Someone saw a large alligator on Old Cemetery Road and called 911. What Maffo saw upon arriving was not just a large alligator. It was the largest alligator he had ever encountered since arriving on Hilton Head Island in 1982.
Carolyn Schriber's insight:

This is just South Carolina, not Civil WAr, although the gator was originally found near the Union Army cemetery.
