BEAUFORT, S.C. (Nov. 30, 2021) -- The Beaufort History Museum will host the encampment of the 48th New York Inventory, Company F, in a re-enactment of events that helped change the course of American history in  late 1861.

The re-enactors will encamp in the Arsenal courtyard (713 Craven St.) and present live presentations of Civil War era camp life, educational discussions, drills, marching, bagpiping, and interactive activities for the entire family, Saturday, Dec. 4, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

From 9-10 a.m., Beaufort History Museum members can have coffee with the re-enactors at the Arsenal. Non-members may join now at a discounted rate at BeaufortHistoryMuseum.com.

Included in the presentations will be discussions and live demonstrations of the importance of music and bugle calls during the war, the variety and use of weapons including cannon, how medical support was deployed in the field, the role of women, camp “dining” and cooking, and other relevant topics.

Admission to the event is free (donations will be accepted). Admission to the Beaufort History Museum will be discounted for adults ($5) and seniors ($4). Active military and children under 12 are free.

The Beaufort History Museum, which was founded in 1939, has evolved to focus specifically on the deep and rich history of the Beaufort District.
