South Carolinians in Vietnam:
The War that Changed Everything.
It was a conflict unlike any other in our history, one that changed our politics, our culture and our very concept of ourselves as Americans.
In 1944, anyone could follow how the war was going by looking at a map. There was the front line, clearly drawn.
Vietnam wasn’t like that.
Visitors will be immersed in the stories of South Carolina veterans, through experiences reproducing what it was like fighting in the jungle, in the Mekong Delta, and in the cities of South Vietnam.
You’ll pass through the thick foliage, encounter soldiers wading through a rice paddy, and enter the wreckage of a street in Hue during the Tet Offensive.
A War With No Front Lines.
South Carolina and the Vietnam War.
The soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen of South Carolina who served there have powerful stories to tell, and they are now on display in our groundbreaking exhibit at the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room & Military Museum.
