Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site – Situated on US Highway 521 Between the town of Camden and Interstate I20.


Camden, the state’s oldest inland settlement, was founded in 1730 as part of King George II’s township scheme. By the 1750s, Quakers and Scots-Irish emigrants and immigrants from Virginia had founded themselves in the frontier settlement, which was originally known as Fredericksburg Township (later Pine Tree Hill).

In 1758, Joseph Kershaw, a native of Yorkshire, England, settled in Charleston and opened a shop for a mercantile company. He prospered, and by 1768, the town had become the colony’s most important inland trading hub. The town was renamed Camden after Lord Camden, the defender of colonial freedom, at his suggestion.

The American Revolutionary War returned to Charleston in May of 1780. It came crashing down. Lord Charles Cornwallis and 2,500 British troops marched to Camden almost immediately, establishing the largest British supply post for the Southern Campaign. Camden residents have been aware of the horrors of war for eleven months.

Nearby, two wars were waged. The Battle of Camden, the Revolution’s worst American battle setback, took place nine miles north of the museum on August 16, 1780. On April 25, 1781, General Nathanael Greene and about 1,400 Americans fought 950 British soldiers led by Lord Francis Rawdon in a nearby battle. The Redcoats were compelled to flee Camden as a result of the British victory.

Fort Camden

Camden was strategically the most important of the five principal inland garrisons maintained by the British during the1780-1781 Southern Campaign.

Men Of Camden

After the surrender of Charleston, Lt. Colonel Banastre left, and 270 mounted British troops covered 105 miles in 54 hours in pursuit of Colonel Abraham Buford .

The Battle Of Camden

The tragedy of the Battle of Camden is that it should never have taken place when and where it did. The marker & monument are located 2.2 miles from the fork.


Just spend a couple of quiet hours spending a hard year with the British! Visitors may select a guided or self-guided tour, focused on the Colonial and Revolutionary periods, to learn about Camden’s early history.

The 107 hectares of outdoor complex comprises the town site of the XVIIIth century in Camden, John Craven House restore and furnished in 1785, the Cunningham House in 1830 (the tour office and the gift shop), two log cabins with exhibits from the early 19th century, the partially restored McCaa House, the rebuilt and furnished mansión of Joseph Kershaw, the headquarters in 1795. Camden Historic is a National Park Service affiliate location.

Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site – A brief description of

Fort Camden

Camden was geographically the largest of the British’s five major inland guards in the 1780-1781 Southern Campaign. Four redoubts strengthened it well. The city was encircled by a wide fence and a house across the Kershaw, the headquarters of the city. Joseph Kershaw’s close-known gaol and powder magazine for the State of South Carolina was also fortified.

On 1 June 1780, Lord Cornwallis took over the city of Camden, leaving Lord Francis Rawdon in charge. He returned to Charleston for his “government season.” At the hearing of the march to Camden by General Gates, he called in his whole command to visit him on 13 August in Camden. The Cornwallis army stayed in Camden until September 8, 1780, after three days at the Battle of Camden.

The regular Camden garrisons under Rawdon included the 23rd and 33rd Foot Regiments, Irish Volunteers (recruited in Philadelphia, New York by Rawdon), a cavalry legion, infantry units, and North Carolina Provincials Corps of Brown’s and Hamilton. The garrison was housed in the rough huts, made up Camden’s shops and churches.

Clone-a-Willy: The Most Fun Way To Clone Your Penis

Clone A Willy is a penis casting or penis modeling kit for those who don’t know it yet. These custom dildo kits have everything you need to create amazingly detailed, vibrant penis replicas or anything your naughty brain can imagine! The DIY dildo set promises to make dildos and is incredibly accurate. The penis casting kit uses 100% body-safe materials to provide essential details. You will be amazed to see that the veins and texture of your skin are precisely replicated on a dildo.

Many people complain that their dildos always go wrong with this set. But don’t worry, I have your back. In this article, I will walk you through making your homemade dildo, and you will get a perfect copy of your willy that you can imagine. So far, I have made over 10 dildos with this kit, so I consider myself an expert in producing a willy.

The Ingredients

Before starting, let me tell you what all you get in the kit:

  • A pouch of molding powder
  • A cheap vibrator
  • A thermometer (!)
  • A balsa wood stick for stirring
  • Two jars of silicone gel

Be careful not to damage or throw away the plastic container they have given, as this is the container where the penis is in, and make mold the dildo! You just have to cut it a little bit, because I’m sure you don’t have a 15cm willy, do you?

With the products neatly assembled on the table, you will need to assemble some essential tools and equipment so that the whole process can continue.

Use the following checklist to get more stuff:

  • Measuring cup
  • Large mixing bowl
  • An accurate timer
  • Scissors
  • A disposable container to mix silicone in
  • Four-inch square cardboard to suspend the vibrator as the dildo hardens
  • A strong nylon thread

The Making of the Dildo!

It certainly isn’t so as daunting as the whole deal might sound. It could be a rather enjoyable couple activity if you look at it.

First of all, go through your instruction manual properly. Yes, read it twice, so you don’t miss any point.

Now, let’s begin!

  1. Cut the molding tube to the correct length.

    Place the tube next to your hard erect penis. Mark half an inch from the head of the penis on the tub and cut it off at that end.

  2. Get 415mL of water and heat it to 90°F.

    The water needs to be precisely 90° and measure a volume of 415mL. It will only mix well with the other components and ensure a perfect mold set.
    You can use the thermometer present in the Clone A Willy kit to check the temperature of the water at regular intervals.

  3. Get your timer at 60 seconds and mix the water with the molding powder.

    As you find the water heating up to 90° (repeating!), cut open the bag of molding powder, then start your timer for exactly 1 minute. And then, pour the molding powder into the water and start mixing with the help of a spatula. 60 seconds is all you got.

    Mix for 60 seconds and pour it into the cylindrical container you trimmed initially. Don’t worry. The mixture would still be a bit lumpy.

  4. Set your timer to 120 seconds and dive your dick into the clumpy-gooey mixture

    Be careful to place the penis in the cylinder and make sure it stays stiff for 2 minutes. You can use stimuli of various kinds to stay hard; I joined my husband and teased him about keeping the boner going.
    This is important because if your penis softens or loses hardness midway, the mold may collapse, giving you a smaller and less impressive version of a tight penis. You can even use a cock ring if that’s your thing!

  5. After the timer hits 2 min, take your dick out SLOWLY and STEADILY.

    After removing the willy from the genital form, let it dry for 4 hours before proceeding to the next step. If you’re confused, I’m talking about mold, not your genitals.
    As for your penis, go straight to the toilet and wash it well with soap. Although every product here is biologically safe, it is better to maintain hygiene.
    The instructions usually require you to wait 2-4 hours. But take my advice and let it work all night. Let the mold sit for about 8-10 hours for the best results.


  1. Mix the two jars of silicone and pour in

    Stir the silicone fluid for another 2 minutes with a stirrer. Strictly adhere to these timings for best results.
    Once you insert the vibrator into the fluid kit, it will rise. Eventually, the fluid goes into a thick form until only an inch from the top remains. Do not worry; this one-inch gap is left for the vibrator. If you don’t want a vibrator, fill it in as usual.

  2. Insert your vibrator into a cardboard holder

    Take a square carton and cut the small X in half. Push the vibrator through the X on the cardboard box. This is done so that the vibrator does not immerse itself inside the mixture and hang on the carton.
  3. Place the vibrator precisely in the center.

    Place the vibrator right in the middle of the liquid mold using the cardboard support. Take care so as not to tilt the whole thing, as that will displace your vibrator.
  4. Leave the setup undisturbed for at least 30 hours.

    Keep the whole thing in a safe undisturbed location and get back after 30 hours. Once again, the instruction manual says only 24 hours but trust me, 30 is the minimum. I have tried and tested it.

Once the item hardens, remove it from the mold, wash it with soap and water, and you’re good to go!

If you follow every step down to the last detail, I’m sure you will have the beautiful copy of your penis you’ve always wanted. Things can go wrong on the first try, so always buy a second package ready (not to mention more dildos!).
