South Carolina and the Revolutionary War

Good news for preservationists and students of the Revolutionary War in the South.  “South Carolina is on the cusp of racking up another Revolutionary War victory, this one 225 years after the fact,” according to an article in The State on August 7.  Legislation has passed both the U.S. House and Senate, in slightly different forms, for a study that could lead to more recognition for the dozens of prominent battle sites in South Carolina, that could lead to what is being called a “Southern Campaign of the Revolution Heritage Area.” 

The article states that “The corridor designation would help with publicity and could lead to more federal money, but the story already is being told. The effort to gain a heritage corridor designation grew out of a meeting more than a decade ago to plan a brochure on the backcountry Revolutionary War sites. The concept gained momentum as the leaders of those sites gathered in recent years to commemorate the 225th anniversaries of the Revolutionary battles.”

Sites to be included are Historic Camden, Musgroves Mill, Landsford Canal, Andrew Jackson and King’s Mountain state parks, Historic Brattonsville and National Park Service sites at Ninety Six, Cowpens and Kings Mountain.  Highway signs and Web sites would point tourists to the various sites, and it would be easier to get federal help in protecting some of the sites still in private hands.
