Homeschool Friday

The SCCRRMM’s “Homeschool Fridays” are a FREE program offered on the second Friday of each month during the academic year. Sessions are at 10:00AM and 11:00AM (the same lesson is taught, both hours). The programs are geared toward students of all ages, and include lectures and activities.

Please note: from September through January, we are offering an additional lecture, a biographical sketch of a military hero (or, in one case, villain), focusing on character qualities. The biography lectures will be held on third Fridays, at 11:00 only.

Session Schedule:

Cadets and Boy Soldiers of Confederate South Carolina
Date: 01/11/2019

When the SC legislature in 1864, called up the state’s 16-year-old as the “Junior Reserves,” it was a dramatic decision – but one in keeping with a strong state tradition of “boy soldiers.”  Learn about the brave service of these young men!   

 

“Stonewall” Jackson
Date: 01/18/2019

A general better known by his nickname than his real one, Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson is remembered for his eccentricity, his faith, and his remarkable battlefield leadership.  Come learn about the man General Lee called “my right arm.”

 

The Skirmish at Congaree Creek
Date: 02/08/2019

The closest battle – literally - to our museum, was a desperate stand by a group of dismounted cavalry against overwhelming numbers of Union attackers at Congaree Creek.  It’s a site you can visit today, with a lot to see!   

 

SC Stories from WWI
Date: 03/08/2019

 More than 64,000 South Carolinians served in World War One, but their stories are largely forgotten. We’ll choose a few and tell you about their experiences in, and over, the trenches!

 

Tigers Over China
Date: 04/12/2019

It’s a terrific World War II adventure story – American fighter pilots secretly travelling overseas long before Pearl Harbor, to help defend China from the Japanese invasion.  The “Flying Tigers” were legends in their own time; in our time!

 
Memorials and Memory
Date: 05/17/2019

Between Confederate Memorial Day (May 10) and our national Memorial Day (May 27), we’ll look at the history and meaning of local war monuments, and the stories behind them.  You pass by them every day!
