South Carolina State Militia

While there has been much research done on the South Carolina units that were mustered into CSA service, their efforts, and suffering, little has been expended on the units raised who generally stayed within the borders of the state. What little that has been done is less then complimentary. While it is true they did not get involved in the better know battles, they did their duty and provided support for such troops by providing "second line" support services, allowing the CSA units to perform their duty.

These pages are committed to those patriots, some too young to shave, others well past their physical prime, who put their lives on the line just as surely as their brothers and sons were doing in Virginia and in the west. When the chips were done and they had to fight, they did their fair share.

I have a great grandfather and a great great grandfather amongst thier number and I fear that unless I do my part to preserve their memory, they will be forgotten. It is just not a bumper sticker phrase when I say,
