The Beaufort District Collection (BDC) collaborates with the USCB Libraries to spotlight the recent completion of the second volume of the Magnus Opus of local history entitled Rebellion, Reconstruction, and Redemption, 1861-1893: The History of Beaufort County, South Carolina, Volume 2 by Dr. Larry Rowland and Dr. Stephen Wise.
Amazon describes the book as follows: “In Rebellion, Reconstruction, and Redemption, 1861-1893, the second of three volumes on the history of Beaufort County, Stephen R. Wise and Lawrence S. Rowland offer details about the County from 1861 to 1893, which influenced the development of the South Carolina and the nation. During a span of thirty years the region was transformed by the crucible of war from a wealthy, slave-based white oligarchy to a county where former slaves dominated a new, radically democratic political economy.” Copies of the book will be available for purchase and autographs. Co-sponsored by the USCB Libraries. Only 50 seats available. Registration is required. To do so, please email email@example.com or call 843-255-6468. The free event will be held on Thursday, September 17 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Beaufort District Collection at Beaufort Branch, 311 Scott Street, Beaufort.
