"The Battle of Port Royal" -- Mike Coker
Our 2010 Beaufort District Collection program schedule relating to the history, culture, and environment of Beaufort District continues on Monday, February 22nd.
Michael D. Coker, author of The Battle of Port Royal, will talk about his research into the “pivotal turning point” of the Civil War that occurred in our area. The naval engagement involved two forts in Beaufort District (Fort Beauregard on Bay Point and Fort Walker on Hilton Head) and the “largest fleet ever assembled by the United States” up to 1861.
We are hosting two sessions: 1) one at the Hilton Head Branch Library: Monday, February 22, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm, and 2) in the Paul Siegmund Room, 311 Scott Street, Monday, February 22nd, 5:30 – 6:30pm.
The program is free and open for anyone aged 12 years and over interested in the history, culture, or environment of our community.
