NSDAR Henry Middleton Chapter recently took a road trip to the South Carolina State Museum. The Traveling Exhibit program, “The American Revolutionary War in South Carolina,” opened at the museum before going on the road to museums throughout the state.

The exhibit examines the major role South Carolina played in the American Revolutionary War, where more than 200 engagements (battles and skirmishes) took place.

The exhibit covered a progression of topics and takes the viewer through the state’s colonial background through the rebellion in South Carolina, the Boston Tea Party, the formation of the Continental Congress, the British attack on Charles Towne (now Charleston) in the Battle of Sullivan’s Island, as well as the Declaration of Independence.

A stop in Wagener for a bite to eat at The Little Bake Shoppe was a hit on the way home.
