Dr. The South Carolina State Museum will present “Trying to Keep the Southern Frontier Quiet, 1776- 1780,” a discussion in conjunction with the new temporary exhibit, The American Revolutionary War in South Carolina. Fritz Hamer, curator of published materials at the South Caroliniana Library, will explore how in 1776 the Cherokee nation thought they could push the white settlers off their lands with British assistance. This presentation will examine the fallout of the Cherokee war on native groups and the tenuous effort of George Galphin, American Commissioner for Southern Indian affairs, to keep them neutral. The discussion will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 21 and is included with museum general admission or membership. Visit scmuseum.org/exhibits to learn more.
