Archaeologists digging up history, guided historic tours of the 250 year old fort, and musket-fire by Revolutionary War-period re-enactors —these are just some of the activities you can experience during Colonial Dorchester: Under the Crescent. Watch as members of the 2nd South Carolina Regiment re-create experiences of South Carolina’s Continental soldiers such as firing muskets, conducting military drills, cooking, and camp-life.
