If you ever travel through central South Carolina, take a little time off the road to visit Camden, a very little known but well preserved battlesite from the Revoluntionary War. There is also some great Civil War History nearby where the Battle of Boykin's Mill was fought at the end of the war.

Back at the Museum, there is a complete reconstruction of General Joseph Kershaw's house rebult on the exact site as the original. The partial stockade wall is reconstructed also to show the boundries of the old town of Camden during the period. There were only about 80 buildings there at the time. This was a British Stonghold. Andrew Jackson and his brother were in jail and he (Andrew) watched the battle of Hobkirk's Hill from a knot hole in his jail cell.

So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
