Battle of Camden Special Resource Study » Battle of Camden » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) has completed a special resource study to consider whether the Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site and the Camden Battlefield Site should be added as a unit of the national park system. While the study team concluded that the sites are suitable for inclusion in the national park system based on their significance, it was determined that the addition of these sites to the national park system is not feasible due to a number of factors, including comparisons to budget and staffing for other thematically related NPS sites in North Carolina and South Carolina.

Regardless, Camden Battlefield is considered eligible for designation as an affiliated area associated with Historic Camden. Both sites are also important contributing elements to the potential Southern Campaign of the American Revolution Heritage Area and could play important roles in enabling visitors to understand the scope and consequences of the Revolutionary War in the South as the nation prepares to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution.
