War & Wine: The Revolutionary War in the Beaufort District
A tale as old as wine…or time! War is an unfortunate hallmark of history, but wine is one of the happy spoils. This presentation brings history to life, including tastings to enhance the experience.
South Carolina has always been home to passionate and patriotic people. Join Rich Thomas from The Heritage Library to explore The Revolutionary War in the Beaufort District. The stubborn resistance by the Patriot stronghold on Hilton Head and the mainland was a major factor in protracting the English attempt at controlling the coast between Charleston and Savannah. Learn how the roles played by both the Beaufort District Regiment militia and Hilton Head militiamen were significantly locally and nationally. After the presentation, join us in a wine tasting curated just for this history lesson.
Cost – $50 per person
