Remembering General Francis Marion.

The South Carolina State Senate passed a bill sponsored by the late Senator William C. Mescher that recognized February 27th as General Francis Marion Memorial Day. The bill was signed into law by South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford May 2, 2007. General Marion's Brigade Chapter of the South Carolina Daughters of the American Revolution presented a wreath at the tomb of Francis Marion in Pineville, SC. Marion was laid to rest on Belle Isle Plantation owned by his brother.

On May 21, 2008 we toured the SC Governor's Mansion, visited the SC Capitol Building, and enjoyed the SC Military Museum. We received a write-up in our local paper, The Berkeley Independent. Click on this link. http://www.berkeleyind.com/results/0528FEdar

Major Scott Bell of the South Carolina National Guard (SCNG) gave us the history of the National Guard in South Carolina on Nov. 8, 2008.  The SCNG has been around since the first settlers set foot on the shores of the Ashley River and founded Charles Towne in 1670. The SC militia was formed to protect the settlers. 

We enjoyed brunch at the St. Stephen History Room.
