Historic Camden Revolutionary and the Kershaw County Historical Society will co-host the Battle of Camden Conference on April 2-4, 2004 in Camden, South Carolina. Camden, oldest existing inland town in the state, is about 30 miles northeast of Columbia.
The conference will be held at the Health Resource Center in Camden, with the Best Western in Lugoff the host motel. Attendees will take an in-depth interpretive tour of the Battle of Camden site situated a couple of miles north of town. Saturday evening includes a sit-down dinner and the premier performance of a historical monologue on Horatio Gates presented by British actor/playwright Howard Burnham, who now resides in Columbia. Burnham's performances are London theatre at its best! His repertoire of British historical figures includes fabulous portrayals of Lord Cornwallis and Banstre Tarleton.
Tentative Conference fee: includes lectures, daily snacks/Saturday box lunch and dinner theatre. Early Bird ($110); Full Fee $120 ( a separate fee for dinner theatre only will be offered also).
Sunday: post-conference guided bus tour of surrounding battle sites (tentatively, Hobkirk's Hill/Camden, Fishing Creek, Buford's Massacre, Hanging Rock, etc.) includes a box lunch. Fee: $35 per person.
The brochure will be mailed in January 2004.
