Museum Matinee: Rebels & Redcoats – The World Turned Upside Down
The 2019 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the PBS Film Series Rebels & Redcoats: The World Turned Upside Down. The British have enjoyed command of the sea, and with it the ability to move thousands of troops to wherever they are needed. 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. The film is free to the public and will be shown January 23 at 1 p.m. at the Horry County Museum in Conway.
