The Coastal Discovery Museum will host this virtual program on January 6 at 2 pm with Chris Barr as the presenter.  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 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.


Barr is the supervisory interpretive ranger at Reconstruction Era National Historical Park.  He has worked for the National Park Service for eight years, previously at Andersonville National Historic Site and Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.


The cost is $5 for this virtual only program and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
