Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution (SCAR) 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 on Revolutionary War topics. And we publish the on-line journal, Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution. We also facilitate the discovery, preservation, interpretation, and promotion of Revolutionary War historic sites on the ground.

Q. Is it possible to make a financial contribution to help with the costs of the magazine and other SCAR projects?
