Camden Revolutionary War Site  If you happen to be something of a history buff like I am, then there is no shortage of places for you to visit throughout Columbia, SC and the surrounding areas. Just 40 minutes outside of downtown Columbia in the town of Camden, is the Camden Revolutionary War Site. A wonderful piece of history sitting on 106 acres where 100's died in Revolutionary War. Arguably the center piece for the grounds in the Kershaw-Cornwallis house that proudly overlooks the rest of the site. There are several other buildings and cabins also on display, along with artifacts discovered throughout the area. The cost of admission is $5 and the experience is priceless.

 

The Camden Revolutionary War Site is located at 222 Broad Street Camden, SC 29020

      The Battle of Camden has been portrayed as a victory for the King's Troops.  American Patriots were outnumbered, they could not withstand the Redcoats.

     But all was not lost.  Less than two months later, the American Revolution was won at the Battle of King's Mountain, South Carolina.  The Overmountain Men came from the hills of North Carolina, Tennessee, and points beyond to join up with South Carolinians and Georgians; they overwhelmed the Redcoats and brought Lord Cornwallis to his knees.

   History books emphasize "northern" patriots like Sam Adams, Ethan Allen, Patrick Henry and George Washington.  Those are all great men who deserve their place in history.  But it was The South that defeated King George III, on a mountain top in the great State of South Carolina.

Hi JL- We've visited more Civil War sites than we have Revolutionary War sites. But we may have to put this on our list for our next road trip.
