Bill would expand Reconstruction Era NMon & redesignate it as NP

Beaufort County's national distinction as a hub for Reconstruction Era history could be expanding to make it easier to tell the story nationwide.

The Reconstruction Era National Monument would become a national park under a bill filed in April by U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., and co-sponsored by Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C. The bill would formally expand the monument's footprint to include the city of Beaufort's historic district and St. Helena Island, making it easier for sites in those areas relevant to Reconstruction to be added to the park.
