The Past Defined

Get involved and help us tell the stories that matter in our largest ethnography project to date!

One of the most cataclysmic events in American history ended the lives of 620,000 soldiers and freed 3,900,000 men, women, and children from the shackles of slavery.

The four years of fighting that began on the shores of South Carolina and ended within the walls of McLean's parlor at Appomattox are ingrained in our national memory and continues to spark dialogue today.

The Past Defined is a community oral history project that seeks to capture the voices of those that are willing to reflect on the generational effects and aftermath of the civil war.

Throughout the month of February, and specifically on Fridays from 4-6 pm, guests are welcome to visit the historic Craik-Patton House in order to record their thoughts and personal stories in honor of Black History Month.

Appointments are recommended, but not required. Join us, and share your story!

Friday, February 22, 2019 at 4:00pm to 6:00pm
