Interesting information that will soon be banished or erased from history books in the attempt to rid ourselves of offensive history.

We revisited the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Museum. Each time we visit something has been added and more history is learned. This is definitely a site children should visit. It will be a real history lesson for them.

Very informative and well laid-out museum. I am surprised at some of the things that survived the war and are able to be displayed.

I feel it should be laid to rest with the rest of history! Leave behind in the history books! It is 2018!
