We are registered with the State of South Carolina and designated as a South Carolina Charitable Organization. Southern Campaign 1780℠ owns, manages and operates the Battle of Camden Reenactment℠ and Liberty Live℠ to provide living history experiences that educate, entertain, and inspire. We aim to be the region’s leading organization for advocacy, promotion and production of American Colonial and Revolutionary era living history.
Our annual Battle of Camden Reenactment event will be held on the second weekend of November 2021. As with previous years, the event hosts hundreds of living historians portraying Crown and Patriot Revolutionary War soldiers and distaff (women and children of the soldiers), along with 18th century craftsmen, period craft demonstrations, and merchants with reproduction 18th century wares. Featuring daily mock battles, complete with cavalry, cannons, and cracking muskets. This is over a 50-year-old Kershaw County tradition that brings in reenactors and spectators as far away as the Midwest, New England, and the Deep South. Revenue raised by this annual reenactment funds the Liberty Live℠ educational program.
Liberty Live explores the lives of indigenous, immigrant, and enslaved populations and their influences on the eventual emergence of a new nation. We excel in engaging and connective experiences that are relevant, meaningful and educational to all people.
