Local History Programs & Exhibits in September

It's now officially Fall, a time when the Beaufort District Collection's local history program series starts up again. We're concentrating on local military history during September.

  • Author John Stevens examines the Ribbon Creek Incident in a Court-martial at Parris Island on Tues., Sept. 15th at 11 am in our BDC@ Bluffton Branch Library program.
  •  The Parris Island Historical and Museum Society has loaned us its "We Are P.I.: Making Marines at the Recruit Depot" exhibit through Sept. 25th. Please drop by Mondays through Fridays, 10 am to 5 pm to see it.
  • The second volume of the History of Beaufort County is entitled Rebellion, Reconstruction, and Redemption. It covers the political and military history of Beaufort County, 1861 - 1893. Registration is required to attend the Sept. 17th presentation and book signing with Dr. Larry Rowland and Dr. Steve Wise. Call us 843-255-6468 or e-mail gracec@bcgov.net to register.
  • USC-B Libraries have loaned us a small three panel exhibit on the topic of Reconstruction in Beaufort. It will leave October 30th. Please drop by Mondays through Fridays, 10 am to 5 pm to see it.

We do so hope that you'll be able to join us to learn more about Beaufort District's long and fascinating history!
