Daufuskie Island's recorded history traces back to Pre-Revolutionary War times. It was the site of a skirmish called the "Daufuskie Fight" during the Yamasee War of 1715–1717. The island was home to a sizable population of Gullah inhabitants from the end of the Civil War until very recently. The Jimmy Buffet song, "The Prince Of Tides" (from his 1988 album, Hot Water) laments the urbanization of the island and loss of the Gullah. Pat Conroy’s 1972 book The Water is Wide was set on Daufuskie, fictionalized as "Yamacraw Island". The book recounts Mr. Conroy's experiences teaching on the island in the 1960's.
