And We’re Off! Liberty Trail Victories at Camden and Eutaw Springs

And We’re Off! Liberty Trail Victories at Camden and Eutaw Springs

A devastating defeat. A Signal Victory. The battles at Camden and Eutaw Springs bookend a period of incredible consequence to the American Revolution. The Southern Campaign started as a British attempt to reinvigorate the war effort and culminated in Lord Charles Cornwallis’s surrender at Yorktown in October of 1781.

Today, I'm so grateful to have you with us on a mission to preserve the hallowed grounds of this fateful series of battles. With these 308 acres 295 acres at Camden and 13 at Eutaw Springs we take an important first step toward our goal of preserving up to 2,500 acres of Revolutionary War battle land in South Carolina. As a supporter of the Trust, you should be proud of your role in securing this precious part of American history.

But we can't rest on our laurels. Between the acres that remain unprotected and the innovative educational tools we're developing to tell the story of this pivotal chapter in the founding of our country, we've still got a long way to go.

I truly can't thank you enough for your dedication to battlefield preservation and American history education. I hope you'll continue to blaze this Liberty Trail with us. Together, we can make revolutionary history!

Like I said above, this is about more than saving acres we're also on a mission to educate people about why the Southern Campaign was so important. Do your part by brushing up on your facts and sharing them with the history buffs and patriots in your life.
