The African American Historical Alliance, a South Carolina-based nonprofit organization, is a leading resource for education and the celebration of African American Civil War and Reconstruction history in South Carolina. The Alliance strives to enhance the quality of life in the communities of South Carolina by promoting the common heritage and shared legacy of all our people. We do this through our programs - preservation, education and commemoration.

The mission of the African American Civil War Museum is to preserve and tell the stories of the United States Colored Troops and African American involvement in the American Civil War. We utilize a rich collection of primary resources, educational programming and technology to create a meaningful learning experience focused on this pivotal time in American history. We hope your experience will be rewarding as you explore these 19th century heroes with us. On the first Saturday of each month the museum invites descendants to present to the public information on their ancestor a soldier of the United States Colored Troops (USCT). Presentations are scheduled at either 11am or 1pm.

The Sons and Daughters of the United States Colored Troops (S&DUSCT) is chartered by the African-American Civil War Memorial Freedom Foundation(AACWMFF) to augment the Foundation's mission to use the high visibility of the National Monument " the Spirit of Freedom " and the names of 209, 143 U.S. Colored Troops to change the way American History is taught and to motivate young people, especially African-Americans, to civic pride and patriotism on a national basis.
