About This Show
On April 21st, at 7:00pm, ETV’s The Big Picture will devote a full hour to a discussion of South Carolina’s commemoration of the Civil War’s sesquicentennial. The participants represent the Sons of Confederate Veterans, the NAACP, the National Park Service, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Fort Moultrie/Fort Sumter Trust, the SC Civil War Sesquicentennial Advisory Board, the SC Department of Archives and History, and the SC African American Heritage Commission.
Big Picture host Mark Quinn, Eric Emerson of the SC Department of Archives and History, and Michael Allen of the National Park Service join Dr. Edgar to talk about the commemoration, and about the singular nature of the coalition of disparate groups that have come together to plan the observances which began earlier this year.
