Tour the Battlefield

Come to Camden and put yourself right in the middle of the action where General Greene and his hard-fighting Americans battled for the cause of independence against the British troops under Lord Rawdon.  Historical markers throughout Camden will take you through the locations of the fighting, the decisions that were made, and the critical impact that Hobkirk's Hill and Camden itself played in America's war for independence.

The ARCHH Team Needs Your Help!

We are in need of space near the Hobkirk's Hill/Camden, SC area that is secure and can be used for an artifact conservation lab and a temporary storage space.  We are also in need of the following materials:
  • Large graph paper for mapping
  • Metric 5-meter field tapes for all technicians
  • Notebooks for all field technicians (important for documentation)
  • Sharpies
  • A large clipboard (fitting the large graph paper)
  • An accurate laboratory scale [such as an O-Haus CS 200 scale]
  • A digital caliper (used in analyzing artifacts)
  • Picture hanging wire (stainless steel, single strand)
  • About 5 2-gallon plastic tubs
  • 1 box of Arm &Hammer detergent booster
