SC Civil War Sesquicentennial Statewide Meetings

The South Carolina Civil War Sesquicentennial Advisory Board is planning a series of meetings around the state to give citizens an opportunity to give their ideas about how the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War should be observed and what should be the role of the Advisory Board. The Board wants to hear about what special events should be highlighted and what programs and projects should be encouraged as well as what resources your community can offer to assist with the observance.
