“Making the Hampton Massacre: Native Resistance, Settler Memory, and White Solidarity in South Carolina”

Native American Studies Center
119 S. Main St.
Lancaster 29720

Along a roadside in Greer, South Carolina, a monument inscribes a memory of Cherokee resistance in stone. Installed by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1933, the monument memorializes the 1776 “Hampton Massacre” involving the ancestors of South Carolina’s Redeemer, Governor Wade Hampton III. This presentation by Dr. Evan Nooe, USC Lancaster Assistant Professor of History, will consider how the Hampton family and South Carolinians remembered Native resistance and the role of violence in creating community.
