SC-10-10 War of 1812 Encampment A

Marker text: WAR OF 1812 ENCAMPMENT
The 1812 monument in this cemetery originally marked a burial plot of the Third Regiment of State troops. The soldiers who were buried there apparently died from disease while stationed at Haddrell's Point, nearby. Before the Civil War, the monument is said to have stood at the corner of Pitt and King Streets. It was moved to this Confederate cemetery for protection from vandalism.
Erected by the United States Daughters of 1812, South Carolina Society, 1970
