Michael Coker, Executive Director at the Berkley County Museum, will tell the story of a nearly forgotten point in the history of the United States. On Nov. 7, 1861, a massive U. S. Naval fleet and U. S. Army expeditionary force sailed into Port Royal Sound, defeating the outnumbered and outgunned Confederates defending Fort Walker and Fort Beauregard. This pivotal battle shaped the direction of the Civil War and had a lasting impact on the post-Civil War period known as Reconstruction. Michael has been featured on NPR’s “Performance Today” and has appeared on the Smithsonian channel.
