In honor of President George Washington’s visit to Camden in May 1791, the Col. Joseph Kershaw Chapter of the South Carolina Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SCSSAR), in conjunction with State Society President Wayne Cousar, will host a wreath-laying ceremony at 11 a.m. May 25. The commemoration will be held at Camden’s 18th century town square (corner of Broad and Bull Streets) where Washington was welcomed by Intendant (mayor) Joseph Kershaw. After narrations of Kershaw’s address and President Washington’s reply and other dramatic readings, there will be a second wreath-laying with historical readings at the SAR Revolutionary War Memorial Park near the original burial site of Patriot Baron de Kalb.
