Uniform and clothing exhibits, storytelling, guided tours of the Kershaw-Cornwallis House, colonial era games, weapons and equipment exhibits and blacksmithing demonstrations filled Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site during a remembrance of the Battle of Camden’s 234th anniversary on Saturday. Historic Camden Foundation staff members and volunteers presented the exhibits -- including games such as cup ball and hoop rolling -- while dressed in authentic era clothing. The foundation also held a wreath laying ceremony at the actual Battle of Camden site, approximately 9 miles north of the city on Flat Rock Road where the battle took place on Aug. 16, 1780.
