The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with South Carolinians in WWII: produced by SCETV. This documentary series is a collective remembrance of World War II, taken from personal stories of South Carolina veterans. Beginning with Pearl Harbor, the film weaves together first person accounts of the first stages of the war and includes segments on Fort Jackson and the Citadel, as well as veterans Moffatt Burriss and Theodore Bell of Columbia. Doolittle Raider Bill Farrow of Darlington, who became South Carolina’s first hero after he was executed by the Japanese, is also featured.
The films are free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, on Wednesdays starting on, July 26th – September 20th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
