I don't think you can wrong. Unfortunately, most of the south has more civil war history than it would like. On the other hand, there is great bbq everywhere in the south [though regional iconoclasts might disagree].

If I were doing it, I'd pick the towns that are great to visit and then look for the war and bbq highlights that are there.

For example, I'd do Savannah and pick the history both Civil War and Revolutionary. Fort Pulaski, etc. I'd then head up the road 40 miles to Beaufort SC, the home of 6 Union hospitals during the war including the Episcopal church and large planter's homes which are still standing, the very first place that the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect [It only went into effect in formerly CSA territories then under the control of the Union - at the time of issuance, Beaufort and St Helena's Island were the only places that met that requirement.] Head down 8 miles to Penn Center on St. Helenas Island an early school for emancipated slaves. I'd visit Olde Sheldon Church which was burned by the British since it housed Patriot arms and was then burned by Sherman because it housed Confederate arms.

I'd then head up the road 50 miles to Charleston. Ft Sumter, etc. You know the drill.

My point being: go to any of the noted towns and cities of the south, and you will find history and bbq.
