FMU Trail Commission and ScienceSouth receive grant from the S.C. Humanities Council
FLORENCE – The Francis Marion Trail Commission and ScienceSouth received a portion of $50,000 of grant monies awarded by the S.C. Humanities Council to fund workshops.
The Trail Commission and ScienceSouth will use the grant money to organize two workshops that will look at different aspects of the Revolutionary War: historical, anthropological, and cultural, including a unique look at food history and culture. The workshops are scheduled for the fall of 2008 and the winter of 2009, and the information presented during the programs will be collected in a booklet and in an exhibit.
The awards were selected through a competitive application and review process and are made possible by The S.C. Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Funded projects include a documentary on Harriet Tubman, an oral history project in Allendale County, a local history harvest in the town of Little Mountain and an exhibit and symposium on South Carolina hero Robert Smalls.
