Event at Colonial Dorchester

We have an exciting event coming up on September 8th at the Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site, near Summerville, SC. It's a very historic site, and features the best-preserved fortifications from the French-&-Indian War in the South. It was also an important post in the Revolution. Francis Marion, commanding two companies of the 2nd SC, spent part of the early war there; Thomas Sumter and the 6th SC were posted there later in the war. William Washington, Harry Lee, and other luminaries fought in and around Fort Dorchester as well.

For more info on the site, check out this entry in Steven Steele's great blog,

You can also visit the site's official page: Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site. The site is also very active in French-&-Indian war reenacting. Check out what those folks have been doing at their home unit's page, The Fort at Colonial Dorchester.

Hope to see as many members of the 2nd Regiment as possible at the fort on September 8th!
