Walking in the Past Lane

Reconstructing Dr. Gibbes’ Study
By Rachel Haynie, author of Bestired: A biography of Dr. Robert W. Gibbes
What Dr. Robert W. Gibbes, Confederate Surgeon, physician and naturalist, author and journalist, businessman and publisher, lost in the Burning of Columbia could have filled a fine museum. Walking in the Past Lane patrons will help put back into Gibbes’ “cabinet” items destroyed or plundered: art, fossils and minerals, books and documents, coins and autographs.
