About This Show

South Carolina's historical museums and historical societies are vital links to the people and events of our past. Their work, often accomplished with small staffs, limited funding, and a corps of volunteers preserve more than local history. They provide the foundation of South Carolina history and national history. As Dr. Edgar has said, “All history is ‘local.”

To talk about the work of local historical societies and museums Dr. Edgar is joined by Pelham Lyles, director of the Fairfield County Historical Museum; and Elliot Levy, executive director of the Aiken County Historical Museum. Also on hand is Val Green, who with Lyles is co-editor of the book, A History of the Upper Country of South Carolina from the Earliest Periods to the Close of the War of Independence, by Dr. John H. Logan.
