The South Carolina State Museum has recently opened a new panel exhibit to commemorate the state’s contributions to the Revolutionary War, according to the museum.
The exhibit was made possible by a grant from the South Carolina’s Humanities Council, and according to museum spokesmen, it will soon become part of the State Museum’s Traveling Exhibits Program, beginning to travel to other venues in late 2014.
The exhibit material is quick to point out that during the Revolutionary War, the state provided a venue for over 200 engagements, more than any other colony. The major battles showcased by the museum are the Battle of Sullivan’s Island, the Cherokee Attack and the Battle of Cowpens.
The museum reported that it will also host a series of discussions led by guest speakers, starting June 14. For more information, visit the museum’s website.
