“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.


With the coming of the Revolution, militia duty became more serious. Patriot militia often took the field against the British, and after the British occupied South Carolina in 1780, they organized a Loyalist militia. The loyalist militia of Camden District guarded the town during the battles of Camden and Holbrick’s Hill and fought against the American partisans”

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.
