John Kenny embarked on a five-year research project to capture the story of his wife's extended family in his adopted hometown. The resulting photo-rich history from 1895-2017 is an immigrant story to remind us of the shining hope the United States has been to past generations, as well as their pay-back and -forward in terms of their contributions. One Lebanese family, four immigrant sons, and the lasting impact they have made in Georgetown, South Carolina and throughout the state - this collection of vignettes is a touching tribute to the American dream.
