Juke Joints and Honkytonk Legends

June 23 @ 1:00 pm
Horry County Museum, 805 Main Street
Conway, SC 29526 United States
+ Google Map

The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the SCETV film Juke Joints and Honkytonk Legends. Their “Gaillard Auditoriums” are large, non-descript rooms with wooden tables, metal chairs, and a bar. Their “Bi-Lo Center ushers and doormen” are friends and family who double as roadies. Yet, for the love of the music, the performers and fans leave their 9 to 5 jobs to venture down the back roads of small southern communities to remote watering holes for down home blues, country and western, and bluegrass entertainment. This film is an excursion into a larger than life culture with roots that trace back to traditional African and folk music. It explores this nonconformist genre and the people who seek to preserve it.
The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, June 23rd, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2021. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org.

The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Gettysburg: On Fields of Fire & Valor. This film, written and narrated by Rod Gragg, chronicles the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, which was the decisive battle of the American Civil War. At the Pennsylvania town of Gettysburg on July 1-3, 1863, more than 95,000 Northern troops led by General George Meade engaged in battle with approximately 75,000 Southern soldiers under the command of General Robert E. Lee. Meade’s Army of the Potomac was defeated by Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia on the battle’s opening day, but held off Lee’s attacks for the next two days, and the battle ended in a major Northern victory. Lee’s army was forced to retreat back to Virginia, and although bloody warfare continued for two more years, the Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the Civil War

Mounds, Mortars and Mysteries: Mississippian Period Archaeology in the Wateree Valley- A.D. 1200-1670

July 10 @ 1:00 pm
Horry County Museum, 805 Main Street
Conway, SC 29526 United States

The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present Mounds, Mortars and Mysteries: Mississippian Period Archaeology in the Wateree Valley- A.D. 1200-1670 on Saturday, July 10th, at 1:00 PM. Antiquarians and archaeologists have been investigating the Native American societies living along the Wateree River since the early 19th century. A concentration of mounds, artificially constructed monuments of earth, were noted here in one of the earliest publications on the archaeology of the United States in 1848, yet we still have only scratched the surface. Recent investigations combined with a synthesis of all known information has led to a more informed understanding of these vibrant societies just prior to European contact and colonization. This slide illustrated lecture will share information on the sites, artifacts, foodways and the rich culture of South Carolina Native Americans.
