Sunday, August 31, 2014 Regimental Courier - Summer 2008, Issue 16  

Current Exhibits

The SC Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum’s latest exhibit, “Forgotten Stories: South Carolina Fights the Great War,” focuses on the military history of the war, strategies used during it, and how the war is a part of South Carolina's military tradition.  The exhibit themes examine various aspects of the war such as the forgotten story of the African-American 371st Infantry Regiment, trench warfare, the use of artillery, the new use of airplanes, Medal of Honor winners from SC, and the American Red Cross. 

The exhibit is open through December 6, 2009 and features a replica trench visitors can walk through to while learning about trench life.  Listen to patriotic music from the period and explore South Carolina’s role in the Great War through touch-screen kiosks.  The exhibit also features over 200 artifacts and lifelike mannequins.  This exhibit is part of a grant-funded project which includes other local institutions.  Visit the project website
