“They served”paints a vivid and compelling portrait of the lives of our island’s soldiers, their families and the hardships they endured both before and after the war. It’s a rare opportunity to get a glimpse into the Native Islander experience at a vitally important time in history.
Informing this intriguing tale of those who once called our island home is a treasure trove of service records and pension applications gathered by the library over the years. A generous grant from the Heritage Classic Foundation of Hilton Head was instrumental in allowing researchers to procure these documents from the National Archives.
