The truth told. 

The untold stories of the Reconstruction Period, during and following the Civil War, have been buried in the annals of history for too many years while many of the often mis-told and misunderstood stories are still taught to our children.


The Second Founding of America: Reconstruction Beaufort is a not-for-profit corporation, working in collaboration with The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. Our mission is to uncover the truth and to tell and teach missing parts of our nation's history. Click on the picture below to learn more.


Due to COVID - 19, The Second Founding of America Multicultural Learning Center will be closed until further notice.

Thank you for your cooperation. 

The Reconstruction Era National Historic Network is an initiative by the National Park Service that includes sites and programs that are affiliated with the Reconstruction Era. The Second Founding of America: Reconstruction Beaufort supports this project. To learn more, click below.

Join us in learning and teaching the untold story. 

Join us as we uncover the forgotten history of the heroic fight for freedom and equality for all Americans for which the bloody Civil War was fought. Together, we have much to do to learn, heal, and unify our country.
