The Battle of Camden Reenactment

Just recently, the South Carolina ETV team travelled to Camden, South Carolina to shoot footage for The Southern Campaign of The American Revolution. This shoot’s focus was the Battle of Camden, which occurred on August 16 1780. This historical reenactment was a sight to see. Passionate reenactors traveled hours to Camden from both inside and outside of the state to participate in the event. Yet, the reenactors are not the only ones passionate about this project—our crew is, as well.
