Join us on February 26 at noon, for a presentation on South Carolina’s 371st Infantry Regiment – the African-American regiment that trained at Camp Jackson, and went on to earn distinguished battlefield honors on the bloody Western Front of World War One. The lecture will last for one hour and is free to attend. You are invited to bring your lunch to enjoy while listening.




Ms. Teresa Kemp, historical author and researcher and “Atlanta’s Quilt Lady” as well as a descendant of 12 soldiers of the 371st , and Mrs. Sonya Hodges-Grantham, a 371st descendant who is also a researcher, presenter and the head of the 371st Infantry Association, will talk about the history of South Carolina’s own regiment in the French Army (as the 371st was made part of a French division), including the Medal of Honor earned by Corporal Freddie Stowers, of Anderson, SC.



The 371st Infantry Association and the SC Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum are working to preserve the legacy of this unit, and tell their forgotten story of valor to new generations.  Visitors will also get a chance to see the original overseas flag of this unit, on permanent display in the museum.


Find out if  the 371st Colored troops were all Black!
