Maps & Directions

On January 1, 1863, the men of the 1st South Carolina Volunteers were presented with a flag emblazoned with the phrase "The Day of Jubilee Has Come."  But the day of jubilee was only the beginning.  What happened here in the South Carolina Lowcountry was the birth of a decades long process to reconstruct the American social, political, and economic landscape - a story now told by Reconstruction Era National Historical Park.  Join us at the Coastal Discovery Museum as we hear from Chris Barr , the supervisory interpretive ranger at Reconstruction Era National Historical Park.
