The SC Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum features exhibits that focus on South Carolina's military history.  Experience the museum's mission by exploring the museum’s three galleries when you visit.

While touring the Main Gallery, trace the state's martial tradition through every American conflict from the Revolutionary War to the present.

The Cistern Gallery, located in what was the cistern for the mill building, houses large-scale exhibits that are on display for 1-2 years.

Small specialized exhibits are on display for a limited time in the Malvina Gist Gallery, located inside the Main Gallery.

Rare LeMat Revolver

LeMat – The LeMat Grape Shot Revolver is one of the most remarkable firearms ever produced at any time. It featured a cylinder with not six, but nine .42-caliber bullets, and a separate 18-gauge barrel made to fire buckshot. This put tremendous firepower into the hand of cavalry leader J.E.B. Stuart and others who carried it through the Civil War. In this video, Curator of Education Joe Long talks about the two LeMats the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum has in its collections, one example each from the first and second generations of the weapon.
