From coast to coast and from continent to continent, Darlington County residents have served and fought in every major battle the World has seen, in modern history. This exhibit seeks to honor those brave men and women that served and in many cases paid the highest price for the freedoms that we enjoy. The uniforms and artifacts span conflicts and Wars from the American Revolution through WWII, with each being directly connected with the Pee Dee. Representing names such as; William Billy Farrow, Hazel Burnson, Henry Tazewell Thompson, Henry “Dad” Brown, Theodore J. Cannon, Jacob Miller, Ed Ashby and C. Richmond Wilhoit.
