Continuing the discussion of the American Revolution in South Carolina, the Camden Archives and Museum will host a lecture that delves into the Native American experience just prior to and during the American Revolution. As part of The American Revolutionary War in South Carolina exhibit at the Camden Archives & Museum, Fritz Hamer, stack manager for the South Caroliniana Library at the University of South Carolina will examine the conditions of the Southern backcountry on the eve of the American Revolution and the relations between the Indian nations, especially the Cherokee, and the British up to 1775. Hamer will then turn to the Cherokees and their campaign to expel the frontier settlers from Cherokee lands in 1776, with the expectation that the Crown would come to their aid.
