The Gilder Lehman Institute of American History has awarded Beaufort County Library a traveling “Civil War 150” exhibit for September 2013. The exhibit will be just outside the BDC Research Room doors, 2nd floor, 311 Scott Street, Beaufort from September 9 – September 30 next year. (Big projects take time to prepare). The Beaufort County Library system’s supplemental programming will give our residents and visitors the opportunity to compare and contrast how different the story of the Civil War was here in Beaufort County, South Carolina than elsewhere in the United States. Programs relating to the Civil War, and our own local history, will be held for all age groups and at all our branch libraries. Stay tuned for periodic updates!
