Looking for a different type of history program? Then, this one is for you! Rock in your seat and sing along with the music as you enjoy a lively and entertaining multi-media presentation featuring excerpts from the soundtrack of Ken Burns’ 11-hour television series, The Civil War, broadcast by PBS in the fall of 1990. The music not only tells the story of homesick soldiers, forlorn wives and grieving widows, but also of the unity, hope and national pride of the time.  

Beverly Eggert is a retired Beaufort County English teacher, who now focuses on her four passions: reading, writing, researching, and teaching. A skilled historic storyteller, she also is the coordinator of the Lecture Series presented in partnership by the Beaufort History Museum and the Beaufort County Library. In addition to being a featured presenter for the Lecture Series, Beverly also has been a presenter for the Santa Elena History Center and the South Carolina Humanities Festival 2016.

Our mission is to preserve, promote and interpret the experiences of our past that influence us now and in the future.
