The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the PBS Film Series Rebels & Redcoats: The War Moves South. In the third installment of the series, we see the British open a new front in the southern colonies. They win a series of victories against American and French forces, and find a new army of recruits amongst former slaves. Thousands of African Americans join the British in the expectation of freedom. The war in the south is an often untold story of a savage war of partisans, border raids and guerilla style skirmishing.
The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, November 17th, 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.

A large part of farm life in Horry County involved old-fashioned syrup making. Each fall, sugar cane would be gathered from the field and taken to a local cane mill where the juice could be squeezed from the stalk. Cooking down the raw juice into sweet cane syrup became a celebration and gathering for the community and is a tradition that is carried on each year at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us at the Farm Saturday, November 20th from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm as staff and volunteers demonstrate the process of making cane syrup and a variety of other traditional activities including children’s games, cooking on a wood burning stove, and more!
This event is free and open to the public. The L.W. Paul Living History Farm is located at 2279 Harris Short Cut Road in Conway, SC. For more information, call (843) 915-5321 or e-mail hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org.

The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the PBS Film Series Rebels & Redcoats: The World Turned Upside Down.

But now an extraordinary naval blunder allows the French fleet to isolate a large British garrison at Yorktown. Surrender is inevitable, giving overall victory to Washington and his French allies. Those who have supported the British, the loyalists, thousands of African Americans and American Indians are left to the mercy of the new state.
