The Heritage Library has spent years compiling hospital rolls, cemetery records, Town of Mitchelville citizens lists, Union Soldiers and US Colored Troops files to identify almost 3000 people who lived and died on Hilton Head Island during the Civil War years. This evening was made possible by a grant from the Town of Hilton Head. Join us as we present this information and hear from the descendants of soldiers of the US Colored Troops.

Catering from Whole Foods, Hilton Head Island.
