PBS Film Series Rebels & Redcoats: The War Moves South
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 free film screening begins at 1 p.m., Wednesday, November 17th. The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2021.
