Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow opens on August 31 and will be on display at Rose Hill until November 28, 2019.

The exhibit explores the first 50 years after emancipation, highlighting the central role that African Americans played in advocating for their rights. It also examines the depth and breadth of white opposition to black advancement.

Battle of Blackstocks Commemoration, November 23, 2019

On November 20, 1780 following a fierce battle late in the day General Thomas Sumter, leading around 1,000 Patriot militiamen, gave the feared Lt. Colonel Banastre Tarleton, leading 270 British regulars, his first defeat during the Revolutionary War. This battle was fought on the farm of a Captain William Blackstock along the Tyger River in what is today Union County. On Saturday November 23, 2019 Musgrove Mill State Historic Site will be having a Commemoration of the Battle of Blackstocks followed by a guided hike of the battlefield.

The Battle Commemoration will be from 10:00-11:00 on top of Monument Hill at the Blackstocks Battlefield State Historic Site and will be led by local chapters of the Children of the American Revolution, Daughters of the American Revolution, and Sons of the American Revolution. The guided hike of the battlefield will be from 11:00-1:00 and will be led by leading Blackstocks historian Michael Burgess.

The hike is two hours long and will take place over difficult and hilly terrain and space will be limited so you must register by emailing at or calling 864-938-0100 by 5:00 pm November 22 to go on the hike. There is no need to register for the Commemoration.

Help is needed on behalf of children in Union County who have a parent in prison.  Seventy-one children in Union County have been registered in Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree ministry this year.  We need caring people who are willing to take the name of one of these children and buy presents for that one child.

Prison Fellowship is one of the world’s most effective ministries to prisoners.  They conduct Bible studies and witness and minister in various ways to inmates and their families.

Through Prison Fellowship’s contacts in the prisons, inmates have an opportunity to arrange for Christmas presents to be given to their children.   Each present is given in the name of the parent, with a personal greeting from the parent.   The present with the note from the parent conveys a message far more precious than the present itself.  It tells the child, “Your parent loves you, and so does God!”  We can hardly imagine the joy children feel when they know that the incarcerated parents have not forgotten them – and the joy the parents feel in being able to do this for their children.  These gifts often lead to healing of family relationships, and even to members of the family coming to faith in Jesus Christ.

If you would like to participate, the name of one or more of these children will be provided to you.  There will also be the age and suggestions for gifts from the parent in prison.   Your part is to shop for the child.  It is suggested that about $20.00 to $25.00 be spent on each child.  It may be that a Sunday School class or youth group or other group in your church would “adopt” a child.

If you would like to participate, please contact Sanders Read at 864-441-2317, or e-mail  He will then give you more information.

Please call or e-mail as soon as you can.  Upon your acceptance, you will be given instructions on when and where to deliver the gifts.  They need to be delivered by December 6.  The gifts will be distributed at a party for the children on Sunday, December 15, to which you will be invited.

On behalf of the children and their parents, thank you very much.  And may God bless you.
