Kershaw County History
Kershaw County has a rich history and is the location of over a dozen Revolutionary War battles that happened around 200 years ago.
The first English settlers arrived in Kershaw County in 1732, migrating from the Charleston coast, where they lived for almost 50 years before the famous Revolutionary War battles started.
Camden, named after Charles Pratt, Lord of Camden, was one of the first areas they established. Camden is the oldest inland city in the state of South Carolina.
That battles in this area and the surrounding areas are commemorated in the 107 acre Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site. This is an outdoor museum where those visiting can get an inside look at what life was like during the Colonial and Revolutionary War in Camden and Kershaw County.
Residents get to enjoy the area’s history the first weekend of November each year with the county’s Revolutionary War Field Days. This festival has activities that include a Battle of Camden re-enactment, living history demonstrations, traditional craftsmen, and even a period fashion show.
