Joanna Craig, executive director of Historic Camden Revolutionary War Park, was speechless January 30. That’s because it turned out to be a surprising day for her -- a day Craig said she won’t soon forget. Several days earlier, Craig received a phone call from Kershaw County State Sen. Vincent Sheheen’s office telling her that a Washington, D.C., lobbyist working with him on U.S. National Park Service (NPS) status for Historic Camden and the Battle of Camden site would be in Columbia.
