Legend: Francis Marion in the Pee Dee

June 21 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Florence County Museum’s new exhibit is Legend: Francis Marion in the Pee Dee. This exhibit will focus on the military career and subsequent legends and legacy of General Francis Marion (1732 – 1795). The exhibition will feature a selection of important 19th-century American artworks depicting Marion and his militia during the Revolutionary War with interpretive emphasis on how Marion’s activities in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina contributed to the folkloric “Marion mythos.” These artworks will be requested as loans from major national public & private collections. As much as possible, the exhibition will incorporate historical artifacts recently recovered from archaeological sites associated with Marion’s local military activities. Loans of available authentic primary source archival materials such as documents and maps will be explored to the extent that they would sustain the exhibition’s objectives by adding meaningful support to the overall thesis.
