Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution is an informal fellowship of people with an interest in the events, people, places, and ideas surrounding the American War of Independence. We organize conferences, roundtables, field trips, and archaeological expeditions to promote research and sharing of information and to promote scholarly debate. And we publish the on-line magazine Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution. We also facilitate the discovery, preservation, interpretation, and promotion of historic sites on the ground.
