Listen to tunes under the Harvest Moon
Michael Jacobs E
One hundred and seventy three Harvest Moons ago the Cherokee Nation, including many from the Carolinas, made ready to join the other Southeastern tribes who had been forced by the Federal Government to relinquish their lands and relocate to Oklahoma. Some 4,000 of the 20,000 Cherokee died that bitter cold winter of 1838 while making the grueling 1,000-mile journey that became known as the “Trail of Tears.” Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site will present its first Harvest Moon Concert on Sept. 24 from 7 to 10 p.m. (gates open at 6:30 p.m.). To be held in the garden behind Kershaw-Cornwallis House, admission is $15 adults, $13 seniors and military, $4 ages 6-12, and under 6, free.
