“Carin Bloom: This Will Not Be Believed When It Is First Reported…”

Saturday, June 22, 2024 - 1:00pm

The Horry County Museum presents a program on the Battle of Sullivan’s Island from the British perspective by Carin Bloom on Saturday, June 22nd, at 1:00 PM. The Continental Army's victory over the might of the British Royal Navy on June 28, 1776 - forever now enshrined as Carolina Day - had all the dramatic makings of a feature-length film. Hear the story of this disastrous defeat from a British Royal Navy sailor who saw the action first-hand. From failed piloting in the harbor (was it inexperience or intentional grounding?), to Army reinforcements that never landed, to horrific destruction aboard the ships of the line - including injuries both serious and downright comical - there should never have been a question about the superiority of the British fighting force...and yet somehow, 430-odd Continental soldiers held fast in their palmetto-logged fortress. Come hear the comedy of errors that never should have been; a riveting episode that left no stain on the bravery and intrepid enterprise of His Majesty's Royal Navy, though their loss was complete. Carin Bloom is a public historian with undergraduate and graduate degrees in historic sites archaeology - particularly sites of the American Revolution. Her passion over the past two decades has been sharing the hidden histories of the Colonial era with interested audiences through conventional and unconventional programs. Bringing diverse narratives to light that have been long ignored is a particular focus of hers, and her portrayal as a sailor in the British Royal Navy is no exception. Carin is the Education Manager for Middleton Place Foundation in Charleston, SC, where she puts her passion to work every day for K-12 visitors, as well as in planning and executing interpretive programming for learners of all ages and historical interests. The program is free to the public and will be held in the Museum’s McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway, SC 29526. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcg.museum@horrycountysc.gov. To view a full list of scheduled programs, visit the museum website at
