Hobkirk Hill Chapter, NSDAR
Camden, South Carolina
During the colonial period, a little north of Camden, South Carolina, there was a man by the name of Hobkirk who enjoyed his home which was high on a ridge overlooking springs bursting with fresh cool water. His tranquil spot, later becoming known as Hobkirk’s Hill, would be transformed in the spring of 1781. The once pastoral landscape would soon be scattered with wounded and dying soldiers; the ridge becoming the site of the Second Battle of Camden or the Battle of Hobkirk’s Hill.
Our chapter derives its name from this battle, and we strive to honor the spirit of the men and women who achieved American independence by actively serving our community through promoting our objectives of historic preservation, patriotic endeavor and promotion of education.
