Historic Brattonsville is a 775-acre Revolutionary War site located in York County, South Carolina. It is the site of the Bratton Plantation, which was owned by the Bratton family. The Bratton family came to North America in the early 18th century and ended up settling in present-day York County in 1766. The Historic Brattonsville site now consists of original buildings as well as reconstructed buildings, which were made and decorated to reflect the historical influences of the time.

Colonial Williamsburg Education Resource Library: Learn More About the Office of the President

By B. Jamison

From Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Gazette:

Today, Donald J. Trump becomes the nation's 45th president. But did you know presidents weren't always inaugurated in January? January 20 was designated as inauguration day by the 20th amendment in 1933 (although the date moves slightly based on when the weekend falls). Prior to 1933, presidents were generally inaugurated on March 4, although our first president, George Washington, was inaugurated on April 30. At a time when traveling during the winter was much harder and nationwide votes took longer to compile and tally, a later inauguration made sense. Today, the January date reduces the amount of time between the election and the swearing in of the new president.

ETV StreamlineSC Service Update

By D. Byrd

Students using tablets

Since 2004, ETV has provided a wealth of free digital media content to SC schools through our StreamlineSC service, including state-specific content developed by ETV as well as national content provided by partners.

Due to funding decreases and new ETV services on the horizon, StreamlineSC will offer only our ‘local’ state-developed content AFTER the end of the 2016-17 school year.

The excellent national content provided by current partner Learn360 will continue to be available until August 2017. Learn360 is working with the state to become a state vendor; districts and schools that would like to continue with Learn360 after the state contract expires can work with them for pricing.
