Escape to experience ‘South Carolina and the Great War’
A new exhibit, “South Carolina and the Great War” has opened at the S.C. State Museum, giving an in-depth look at how World War I impacted life in South Carolina.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the Palmetto State was mired in recovery from the Civil War, but supporting World War I amid a renewed sense of patriotism statewide, as 3,000 soldiers served overseas.. Eight South Carolinians who joined the military earned the Medal of Honor; they include Army Lt. James Dozier, who led his troops to safety, killed a German machine-gun unit, and took several prisoners. Also, the Great Pandemic of the Flu of 1918 struck, killing hundreds of thousands of Americans, spurring nurses at Camp Jackson in Columbia and the Charleston Naval Base into action to help fight one of the deadliest epidemics in U.S. history.
The exhibit, through June 18, is free with general admission to the museum, 301 Gervais St., Columbia: $8.95 ages 13-61, $7.95 military and ages 62 and older, $6.95 ages 3-12, and free ages 2 and younger. It’s open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Tuesdays; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays; and noon-5 p.m. Sundays.
