Beyond the Battlefield: Hilton Head Island in Civil War

When you think about the Civil War, does Hilton Head Island come to mind? No? Well, you may change your mind after participating in "Beyond the Battlefield." Join the Coastal Discovery Museum to learn more about the human experience that soldiers, former slaves, and civilians had here during the Civil War. Using first person accounts and historic photographs, we'll discuss the importance of the Battle of Port Royal, the strategic importance of Hilton Head Island, the foundation of freedom for Lowcountry slaves, and the day-to-day life for the soldiers here. Take a trip back in time to learn about this fascinating period of Hilton Head Island's past! Long before our golf courses, resorts, and modern development, Hilton Head Island was home to thousands of soldiers, slaves, and civilians. Join us to find out more about their experiences in the 1861-1865 period.
