This will be a revised version of the talk I did last year at St. Helena Branch, "'Tide of Death:' The Sea Island Hurricane of 1893." (We take the comments on the evaluation sheets seriously.) I will share first person accounts and rare materials from our holdings about the night that death came to call. Consider it a sort of "Show-and-Tell of Disaster." This free BDC@ Beaufort Branch Local History Program is open to anyone over age 12 interested in attending. Program starts at 6 pm. Reservations are not required.
Heads up: The BDC Research Room will be closed at lunchtime, Noon to 1 pm, from beginning on Tuesday, August 19 through Monday, August 25th.
