More than 30 Civil War re-enactors will make camp in the Beaufort Arsenal courtyard later this month to portray life in Beaufort during Union occupation.
The Beaufort History Museum event will be held March 11-13. Admission is free.
The re-enactors will depict Union troops from the 50th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment. Activities will include cooking over open fires, an infantry drill, class at a freedmen school, a march through town and a wreath-laying ceremony at Beaufort National Cemetery.
On March 12, Stephen Wise and Larry Rowland will hold a book signing in Beaufort County Library. The men wrote “Rebellion, Reconstruction, and Redemption 1861-1893,” the second of three volumes on the history of Beaufort County.
Never miss a local story.
