Discover Your Gullah Geechee Roots: Civil War + Reconstruction


The Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor has many sites you can visit to learn about the Gullah Geechee experience during the Civil War and Reconstruction (1861-1877). Join us to learn how you can research the records of the United States Colored Troops to learn more about your own Gullah Geechee family history during this era. We’ve partnered with the Center for Family History at the International African American Museum to present two programs in one afternoon.

Part 1: Documenting Ancestors Who Served In The United States Colored Troops

Part 2: Guided, Hands-On Practice In Library Computer Lab.
