During the American Revolution, free and enslaved South Carolinians faced a choice about whether to support the struggle for independence or to pledge loyalty to the British. Men and women on both sides struggled with this weighty decision and then faced the consequences of their allegiances. Some were banished, some became heroes, some suffered miserably, and some won freedom. Please join CCPL's historian, Dr. Nic Butler, for a look at the options available to Lowcountry residents during those years of crisis.
