Lugoff-Elgin High School students help restore history

Four students (pictured right) spent fifteen minutes tugging and twisting to get this section of the palisade out. After failing to remove the section, they attempted to use shovels. The gentleman with the handsaw in his hand finally sawed it out. Pictured above is a portion of the palisade.
Camden’s Revolutionary War Site’s palisade wall – which is a wooden fence as defense mechanism -- was built in the 1970s to represent the fortified border of 1780-81 Camden. On Wednesday and Thursday, more than 200 Lugoff-Elgin High JROTC students helped take down that wall. Historic Camden Executive Director Halie Brazier said over 300 feet of wall was rotting in some areas; some areas were leaning and some had hurricane damage.
