Open Now through August 16
In this presidential election year, look back at one of the most dramatic moments and shocking upsets in American political history. An underdog incumbent, divisive third-party candidates, and a powerful New Yorker comprise the cast of this unpredictable election.
The Upcountry History Museum-Furman University proudly presents this momentous period of both local and national importance through our in-house exhibition Strom Thurmond and the 1948 Presidential Election. We extend our thanks to our exhibition partners: Clemson University’s Special Collections, the Strom Thurmond Institute, the Thurmond family, the Harry S. Truman Library, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery, and the National American History Museum.
