Join us at the Coastal Discovery Museum to hear long-forgotten and little-known stories of Beaufort County events and the people who, in their time, dramatically changed the world around them and set the course for the future to follow. Mt. Thomas' presentation will focus on nine notable events in Beaufort County's past and how each of them constituted a significant first of their kind in American history. The stories of these events and the people involved constitute the core of his book, Backwater Frontier: Beaufort County, SC at the Forefront of American History.
This Discovery Lecture and Booksigning is part of our fall series. October 9th at 2 pm. Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
