Event Description

November 3 to 5, 2017 - Historic Camden's annual signature event, held the first weekend in November, is Revolutionary War Field Days.   Reenactors from more than 20 states gather on Friday to set up both British and Continental camps for one of the oldest Revolutionary War reenactments in the United States.  Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site is a 107 acre outdoor museum complex that offers a view of life during the Colonial and Revolutionary War periods in Camden and Kershaw Counties.  Included are two circa-1800 log houses that contain exhibits, the restored and refurbished 1785 John Craven House, the 1830 Cunningham house (office/gift shop) a blacksmith shed with working traditional forge, the yet-to-be restored 1795 McCaa house, reconstructions of some of the fortifications built by the British and the reconstructed colonial Georgian house built by Joseph Kershaw, commandeered as headquarters by Charles Lord Cornwallis during the British occupation of Camden in 1780-1781.  Visit the Facebook website https:/www.facebook.com/groups/revwarcamden/  or the website www.historiccamden.org   For more information contact Erick Nason ( ericknason@msn.com ) or Alexis Dekeyser ( jager1776@earthlink.net )  or use the "contact us" form below.
