Photos: Revolutionary War Field Days - Camden, SC
“In colonial America, all able bodied men from teenagers to sixty year-olds served in the militia, a local force that turned out for military service in times of emergency. Official training sessions, or musters, were held once or twice per year in peacetime. Training was often a social occasion with the men dispersing to taverns after a brief drill.
Since 1970 reenactors have gathered in Camden, SC for the Revolutionary War Field Days, a two day event aiming to revisit and explore America's beginnings. The preceding quote was taken from a historical marker at the edge of a creek near yesterday’s battle reenactment. More info can be found at Discover Columbia Annual Revolutionary War Field Days.
