Our Second Annual Living History Encampment will be held Saturday March 4th, 9am-5pm, in the Arsenal Courtyard. Union forces who occupied Beaufort during the Civil War after the Battle of Port Royal Sound (Nov. 7, 1861) will be brought to life by more than 20 re-enactors arriving from several states. They will stage an encampment in the walled courtyard space and provide a unique opportunity for people of all ages to interact with the soldiers and to learn first hand how life was lived in Beaufort during the Civil War.This is a free event with donations gratefully accepted. The Museum is partnering with other Beaufort organizations, including the Beaufort County Library, to plan and conduct the weekend’s educational events.
Our mission is to preserve, promote and interpret the experiences of our past that influence us now and in the future.
